Experienced And Knowledgeable Advocate For Your Parental Relocation Concerns
Ohio has in place a process in which a custodial parent can petition the court to relocate a child, which could interfere with the rights of the noncustodial parent. Unfortunately, this can result in contentious disputes. Custodial and noncustodial parents have rights when it comes to the relocation of their children. A relocation will substantially impact a noncustodial parent’s ability to participate in the lives of their children.
For this reason, their concerns need to be heard. The Law Offices of W. Scott Russell, LLC, in Lebanon, will fight for noncustodial parents whose parental rights are in jeopardy due to relocation disputes. When necessary, our law firm will oppose motions to relocate the child that interfere with your parenting rights. Even when opposition is not possible, we will explore every legal option, including renegotiating the parenting plan. Our No. 1 concern is you.
The Necessary Factors To Consider Before A Relocation Takes Place
The courts will always consider the best interests of a child first in any relocation decision. Courts will generally rule that joint-custody and having both parents involved in crucial decisions for the children is of utmost importance.
Before approving of a relocation, courts will look at:
- Whether such a relocation would not be in the interest of the child’s welfare
- The distance of the relocation
- The reasons for the proposed move
The compassionate family law lawyers at our office will provide solutions to relocation conflicts. We look for resolutions that benefit both you and your children. We will provide guidance every step of the way. When necessary, we will defend your interests in court and argue for modifications of existing court orders.
