Portland Child Relocation Attorneys
We live in a world where moving from place to place has never been more common than it is right now. That said — when people who have been divorced move and there are children involved, there are certain legal issues that must be addressed.
For noncustodial parents, moving may require a post-divorce modification to their parenting time schedule. For custodial parents, the process is more complicated. In either case, our attorneys can help.
Solutions to the problems of child relocation are within your reach. For answers to your questions about Oregon’s child relocation laws and more — call our law offices at (206) 957-7273 or contact us online.
Child Relocation Lawyers in the Greater Portland Area
At Helzer & Cromar, our lawyers handle child relocation issues on behalf of both custodial and noncustodial parents in the Greater Portland area.
It has been increasingly difficult for custodial parents to relocate more than 60 miles from the noncustodial parent. There are a number of factors that the courts will need to consider before granting permission for any relocation. There must be a showing that the relocation is in the best interest of the child. If this is true relocation will be granted provided there is a reasonable basis for such a decision.
Examples that may provide reasonable basis include:
- New job or job transfer
- Accepted for enrollment into a university or another type of educational program that will lead to an improvement in the custodial parent’s life
- New spouse’s job transfers him or her to another state
Whichever side of the child relocation issue you are on — it is important to consult with an attorney about it as soon as possible.
If you are seeking to move, there are very specific steps to follow. If you are seeking to prevent a child’s move — it is important to start preparing your “defense” immediately. In either case — we have the legal experience it takes to achieve your goal.
