Relocation of Minor Children

Hottell Family Law Group, P.C., understands the legal implications when one parent decides to relocate to another city, state or country with minor children, thereby creating greater distance from the other parent. Relocating with the children without the other parent's agreement is not as easy as one might think. The parent being left behind oftentimes objects to the children being moved further away, as it may impair the relationship the children have with that parent. There may be a court order or written agreement in place between the parents that addresses relocation, and sets forth the rights of both parents, or the issue may arise without notice and without any order or agreement. The court is sensitive to the effect that a relocation has on the children and the parents, and it has the authority to prohibit or allow the children to relocate with the moving parent.
