If you are sharing custody of your children with your ex-wife or ex-husband and have visitation rights that you honor but are thinking about moving, then it would be in your best interest to hire a divorce attorney first. Whether you are considering moving to a different city, out of state, or even to a whole new country because of a job, financial decision, or for a different personal reason, it is important for you to retain the services of an attorney from Atkins & Markoff. Issues of relocation can be extremely complicated, especially when you share custody of a child or children and they go to a local school. In many cases, the courts will create custody arrangements that keep a spouse from moving outside of the designated area.
However, our attorneys understand that relocating is sometimes necessary. If this is the case for you, you may need to speak with the courts and your ex-spouse to see what options you may have regarding custody. Your relocation may mean that a modification of the custody order is necessary, which may also mean that you will need to change your child or spousal support payments to accommodate for your child’s travel costs. If you are considering relocating and would like to learn more about your options, contact an attorney at Atkins & Markoff today. We have more than 100 years of combined legal experience and are well-equipped to not only explain your options to you, but help you pursue a modification.
