Child Relocation

Relocation can have a profound effect on both children and parents. If you have been awarded custody of your child in a divorce proceeding, you need to be conscience of the impact that a decision to relocate will have on your custody order.

Arizona law provides detailed guidelines for cases involving a parent who wishes to relocate a child or to prevent child relocation out of state. At this time, a relocation includes a move of 100 miles or more, or a move outside of the state of Arizona. Relocation of a child is one of the most emotional and hotly contested types of litigation. It is critical that a parent requesting relocation have completed the proper preparation and obtained the necessary documentation for this request. Conversely, if a parent attempts to take a child from the state without complying with the statute, or is requesting a move, it is imperative that the parent contesting the relocation aggressively respond to the proposal.
