Berkeley Lawyer Handling Custodial Parent Move-Aways
Family Law Attorney Martin "Jamie" Elmer, Esq., Representing Bay Area Clients for Over 30 Years
When a parent with joint physical and legal custody petitions the court to relocate with the child to another part of the state, country or overseas, it opens up a full range of complex issues involving parental rights and the best interest of the child. If the parent has full custody of the child, the noncustodial parent may not have legal remedy, but the courts do not necessarily assume the move-away is in the best interest of the child. Often, there are strategies for litigating an agreement that works best for all parties.
