Parental Relocation

Parental Relocation Lawyers in Bergen & Morris County, NJ

Intense, complex post-divorce disputes sometimes arise when a custodial parent wants to move with children. Although moves within New Jersey are usually negotiated and/or approved by the court, a proposed out-of-state move may cause serious disagreement and even lead to litigation. With the increased mobility of our population and current economic pressures, we are seeing this issue arise more frequently.

Out-of-state moves with children require consent of the other parent or a court order. Parents who try to avoid this requirement can face serious repercussions. If you are considering a move or want to prevent one you believe is unnecessary and counter to your children’s interests, our lawyers are prepared to thoroughly analyze your case.
