Relocation Issues in Divorce Cases

Be able to assess the best interest of the child and your clients when handling relocation issues in divorce cases. While it is not uncommon for separated or divorced parents to relocate outside their county or state, relocations can have a significant impact on the custody of a child. Whether an attorney is representing the parent who intends to move or stay, this topic will help attorneys assess a client's chances of relocating with the child, address the legal and practical issues that may arise during relocation proceedings, and provide insights and practical examples of how to put their client in the best position to succeed in court. The topic will highlight recent case law, as well as issues that are key to helping the Court determine whether allowing or blocking a relocation is in your client's favor. This information will benefit attorneys practicing in family law who want to ensure they best support their clients' interests in a relocation case.
