Moving with your child: How this impacts child custody decrees

After a divorce, a Missouri parent may find that it is necessary to seek a change to a child custody arrangement due to a desired relocation. Personal reasons, financial strains or career-change possibilities may play a role in this decision, but parents may be surprised to find that any change to a child custody decree must go through the proper legal channels. When navigating a complex custody situation, it is best to have assistance from a knowledgeable family law attorney. 

If a Missouri parent has sole or joint custody, there must be ample warning given to the other parent. We work with parents who wish to move and need to follow the proper legal steps, as well as with parents who object to a proposed move. It can be complex to navigate these disagreements, as well as to come to a beneficial conclusion, but we can help. 

Regardless of the nature of a move, whether it is across town or across state lines, our team knows how to achieve the outcome that you desire. You will have a knowledgeable and experienced legal ally, one who will take a personal interest in your needs. It is hard to co-parent a child after divorce, but you do not have to face these challenges alone. 

It is important for Missouri families to understand that any changes to a child custody agreement must be handled in the proper manner. If a parent wishes to move or prevent a parent from changing a child's current living situation, a strong support system is needed. While it is possible for a parent with joint or shared custody to move with his or her child, it is imperative to have an experienced family law attorney to assist with the legal requirements.
