Child Relocation Attorney in Columbus

Experienced & Knowledgeable Legal Assistance

After a divorce or separation, many individuals wish to relocate out of state. Not only does this offer a fresh start, it can also help you move on with your life. However, if you and your former spouse or partner have children, moving out of the area can quickly become quite complicated. If you share custody of your child with the other parent, you cannot simply move out of state on a whim. Instead, you’ll have to secure consent from the other parent or court permission. Our Columbus child relocation lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and work toward an agreeable solution. We offer compassionate legal guidance based on personal experience in this particular area—in every instance we aggressively advocate for our client and their child’s best interests.

Contact our firm at (614) 344-6965 to learn more about child relocation laws in Ohio or to discuss your case with our attorney.

How Does the Court Decide on Whether or Not a Parent & Child Can Move?

Regardless of which parent wishes to move out of state, he or she must file a notice of intent to relocate if child custody (physical or legal) is shared between both parents. This notice is then sent to the other parent to inform them of your intent to move with your child. The other parent will have the opportunity to object and request a hearing. If this occurs, the court will look at various factors in determining whether or not you may relocate with your child.

Some of the factors the court will consider include but are not limited to:

  • The reason you have decided to move
  • How far away you wish to move
  • The child’s relationship with the other parent
  • The child’s existing relationships with relatives and friends in your current location
  • If the other parent has any criminal convictions, including those pertaining to domestic violence
  • Whether or not the other parent will be able to maintain a relationship with the child

If the court decides to grant you permission to relocate with your child, you will then have to make modifications to your parenting agreement with the other parent. It’s wise to enlist an experienced Columbus child relocation attorney throughout the process to ensure a better chance at an optimal outcome.
