Toms River Parental Relocation Attorney

Family courts may consider many factors before making decisions regarding relocation and other modifications to child custody agreements, including:

  • Relationship between a child and his or her siblings
  • How relocation would impact the education and development of the child
  • Relationship between child and noncustodial parent and how that relationship might change
  • If the relocation will improve the quality of the child's life
  • Reasons the opposing parent presents, if any, to the court

Courts may be reluctant to change child custody agreements if they have been successful, but it is possible to petition the court for relocation if you can prove that it is in the best interests of the child. Our firm can help you understand the information and arguments that can achieve a favorable result for you.
