Crystal Lake Parental Relocation And Custody Attorneys

In all matters involving child custody, the court considers the best interests of the child. When a parent wishes to relocate far away or out of state, he or she must get permission from the court or ask for a modification of parenting time.

While parental relocation can happen in any family, it is especially common in military families. If a parent is deployed out of state or overseas, the custody agreement will need to reflect the reality of a military family. We have experience with relocation cases, including those involving military families. We also have experience with parents moving to a nearby state such as Wisconsin. Whether we work through mediation, negotiation or litigation, our Crystal Lake parental relocation lawyers can effectively argue your position. Please call our office at 815-261-4894 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Removing Children From Illinois

Limited contact with one parent for long periods of time is typically not an ideal parenting situation. The court must carefully consider these parental relocation requests.

While moving away may be necessary for one parent, the relocation must be balanced with the needs of the child and other parent. Child custody is decided by what is in the best interest of the child, whether it is an initial determination or a modification. We can make your argument for or against the modification based on what is in your children's best interests.

We have the experience to advocate for you and your child, whether you are a same-sex or heterosexual family.
