A Family Lawyer Who Ensures That Things Are Done Right The First Time
Relocation first requires a valid reason behind it. Essentially, the new location must be equal to or better than the place the parent is leaving. At the , we attend to every detail in securing the necessary documentation, including letters of employment, addresses of new homes, and the post-move, personal support system the children will have.
At the Law office of Pamela M. Gordon P.A., we combine comprehensive experience in these matters with contemporary knowledge of the statutes governing relocation of a child. Securing modified parenting plans and financial accommodations short of a judge’s ruling is preferred. Yet, regardless of how a decision is reached, we will pursue the best possible outcome.
Having legal representation is paramount to avoid common mistakes, specifically relocating without filing a request to the courts or leaving without notifying the other parent. Those types of oversights can create not only personal chaos, but also serious legal repercussions that affect child custody and visitation rights.
