Los Angeles Child/Parental Relocation Attorney
While divorce severs the legal relationship between husband and wife, it should minimize the disruption of the relationship between parent and child. Therefore, when changes occur that affect the ability of one parent to maintain his or her relationship with the child, such as relocating with the child to another city or state, it is important to bring the matter out in the open and discuss solutions responsibly.
Sherman Oaks, California, Child Move-Away Lawyer
Los Angeles child and parental relocation lawyer Barbara Irshay Zipperman helps family law clients throughout the San Fernando Valley in negotiating and mediating postdivorce modifications of divorce agreements, including modifications of child custody and visitation (parenting plans). She keeps the interests of the children first and foremost as she advocates for the goals of clients in child move-away disputes.
While there can be many reasons necessitating relocating after divorce, it can be detrimental to the other parent's time with the child. It is important that the decision to move be made with the best interests of the child at heart.
- Will the child benefit from having the support of close family?
- Will a parent's new job provide the child with better opportunities?
- Will the child have better education and social opportunities?
- Will the child have a more stable home environment?
- Is there a realistic solution to maintain the child and non-relocating parent's relationship?
