Relocation cases are probably the toughest cases for all involved.  They are emotionally charged because one parent, with or without good cause, believes that there is a need to "relocate".  Whether the planned relocation is across town, or to another county, state or country, there is going to be a change of routine.  Someone will always believe they are being "cheated".  The children feel that their life is being altered and they have little to no say.  The non-custodial parent believes that they are being cheated out of visitation time or are being tossed aside for the convenience of the other spouse.  The relocating spouse believes they have an absolute need to relocate and shouldn't be tied to one location for the sake of the ex-spouse.

Without the cooperation of all sides, relocation cases tend to be time consuming and very complex.  Outside experts tend to need time to evaluate the children and the parties and the Courts have a special interest in "getting it right" as the children lives may be permanently altered by the proposed move.


Our attorneys and Family Mediators are well versed in the nuances of handling "relocation" and complex visitation cases in both New York and New Jersey.  They will assist the parties in creating terms for a workable future that will enable them to keep the best interest of the children intact, while working with the parents to accommodate their individual needs.
