Alpharetta Child Custody Lawyer
Many parents are surprised to learn that, despite having primary
custody of their child, they may be restricted from moving to a new area. Noncustodial parents
have rights to, and they may be able to object to a proposed move if it
will put significant distance between them and the child.
If you are a parent trying to move, or if you are trying to block your
child’s other parent from leaving the area, contact our firm today.
When you choose our firm, our experienced Alpharetta child custody attorney
will take the time to learn about your unique situation and goals. We
will then construct a legal strategy which is completely aligned with
your goals, and will work tirelessly to execute it.
Protect your relationship with your child. Call us today for a case evaluation.
How Is Relocation Restricted?
Georgia has fewer restrictions on relocation than many other states. The
parent who wishes to move must give the other parent at least 30 days’
notice, during which time the other parent can file a petition to block
the relocation. The parent wishing to block the move must then prove that
staying in Georgia would be in the best interests of the child.
A petition to block relocation is essentially a request for a
modification to the custody agreement, a matter with which our Alpharetta child custody
attorney has extensive experience. You do not have very much time to block
the move, so it is important to build a strong case with the help of our
attorney. If you are the parent trying to move, we can help you prove
such a move is in the best interests of the child.
If you’re considering a move, we may be able to help. Call (770)
