Relocating After Divorce

In this economy, many adults are forced to do whatever is necessary to find or keep employment. Some parents commute over an hour to get to work. Others have employers who request that they move across the country with their jobs. Although this is not ideal, in many situations parents may feel like it is necessary to keep their jobs or help move their careers forward.

This situation can be frustrating in the best circumstances, but it can be disruptive if parents share custody or visitation after divorce. Whether you are looking to move for your job or are trying to prevent your ex-spouse from moving across the state with your child, an experienced Plymouth child relocation lawyer can help protect your rights. At Miller & Bartnicki, P.C., we work with parents throughout southeastern Michigan who are involved in child relocation matters after divorce.

Understanding the Limits of the Law

Like other elements of divorce that involve children, the primary factor that must be considered is the best interests of the child. The goal is to disrupt the children as little as possible and help them maintain the continuity of the life they are accustomed to.

In Michigan, you cannot move outside of a 100-mile radius without the permission of the court or the other parent. Whether you are concerned about keeping your child in the same school district, driving several hours to spend time with your child or being unable to reach the other parent, we can help. We work with parents to protect their parental rights during relocation. Learn more about how we can help by scheduling your free initial consultation.
