The end of marriage and child relocation

On Behalf of | Mar 1, 2018 | Relocation |

Deciding to bring your marriage to an end may be tough, but there are times when couples realize that moving forward is necessary. Sometimes, the divorce process is relatively straightforward, while others, such as those who have children, may run into a number of challenges concerning family law. From child support to a custody dispute, legal issues involving children are often quite emotional and can have a significant impact on the futures of parents and children alike. Moreover, a parent may have uncertainty or concerns about relocating with their child after they have split up in Federal Way, or another Washington city.

Parental relocation can be tough for both parties. On the one hand, a custodial parent may be unsure of their rights or responsibilities, while a non-custodial parent may be upset about the decisions their child’s other parent is making. As a result, it is essential for parents to handle legal matters involving child relocation with care and make sure that the case moves forward as smoothly as possible. Depending on your circumstances, different options may be available if you need to relocate with your child, such as revising your parenting plan.

In some cases, custodial parents may try to move with their child for the wrong reasons, showing no regard for the rights non-custodial parents. In others, relocation is critical to the well-being of the custodial parent and child. Either way, parents should handle these issues with care and keep their child’s interests in mind.
