Ventura Relocation Lawyer

Do You Need to Move Away After a Divorce?

At some point in a parent's life it may become necessary to relocate or move to a different state or area. These situations can be exceedingly complicated for divorced parents. Depending on the custody agreement you reached with your former spouse, the decision to relocate brings with it a number of legal issues and procedures that must be addressed before you can move.

If you are thinking about relocating with your children it is very important that you discuss your situation with a knowledgeable Ventura divorce attorney at Negley Law, APC before taking any action that could jeopardize your legal standing.

Relocation Affects Many Aspects Of Your Court Order

The decision to relocate brings with it a number of legal issues that could affect your original child custody and support agreements as well as any spousal support agreement in place. The relocating parent may have been offered a better job, married an individual living in another area, want their children to attend better schools, or they could simply want to be closer to family and friends.

Whatever your reasons behind moving may be, you should not hesitate to seek out legal guidance in regards to your decision to relocate. Relocating may infringe on your former spouse's visitation rights or disqualify you from receiving monetary support.
