Steuben County Relocation Lawyers
Custodial parents often have no idea that one day they may want to relocate after their divorce. Yet years later, they are faced with prospects of a new job, better cost of living, or other positive factors that make them want to move to provide a better life for family. At CRESS LAW GROUP PC, we fight for our clients and their rights to custody of their children.
Many divorce custody agreements have a radius clause of 35 to 50 miles. However, many people feel that if they have sole custody under a Family Court order, or if there is no radius clause, they can relocate without permission. Not true. You must present notice, along with other required information, to the court and the non-custodial parent under Indiana law. This is true even when a custodial parent plans to move across the street or across town, and when a party plans on moving across the state or the country, or to another country.
Planning for your relocation
It is very important that you have a plan for the relocation, and that you present your case well to the court through an experienced attorney at CRESS LAW GROUP PC, so that you can prove:
- The move is being made in good faith and for a legitimate purpose; and
- It is in the best interest of the child
An experienced family law attorney can make the difference
There are very specific points of law and elements that must be met in Family Court for you to relocate. Many people attempt to go to court the first time on their own to request a relocation order. Big mistake! If you are relocating and you want to present yourself as a responsible parent, hire an attorney. Speaking to a skilled lawyer can make the difference between success and failure.
Attorneys at CRESS LAW GROUP PC have the ability to help clients get permission to relocate, and conversely, to stop relocation. We know both sides of this complex and evolving legal matter.
