Child Relocation Matters in Carlsbad, California

At the Law Offices of Borg & Duisters, our Carlsbad Parental Relocation Attorneys and Family Law Lawyers help parents resolve child relocation and custody matters while keeping the child’s best interests as the top priority.

These types of cases are often the most difficult because the results will have a lasting impact on the entire family. Both parents may have deep concerns and bold objections about the child moving away with the custodial parent. The parent who requests the move may be looking forward to beginning a new life in a new city, while the parent who is left behind may view this as an obstacle to his or her relationship with the child. The parent who is disputing the move may also be preventing the move due to bitterness from the divorce, legal separation, or break-up with the other parent.

Either way, there is a specific timeline in which the custodial parent is required by law to give notice to the non-custodial parent. When child visitation orders or custody plans are in place, those must be considered before a child is relocated.

As experienced Carlsbad Parental Relocation Lawyers, we will vigorously advocate to protect your parental rights. In California, move away issues are covered by the state’s child custody laws, and if the move is disputed, the court will make the final determination.

The court considers several factors before granting the move-away request, including:

The input of older children and teens may also be considered by the court before the move is approved.
