Object or Request Child Relocations

If you have received a formal or informal notification that the other parent of your child intends to relocate, you have rights.

I provide services to clients objecting to relocation requests. As well as negotiate necessary alterations for parents planning to accommodate a relocation request.

Solutions for Unsuccessful Co-Parenting

During an initial custody agreement, parties often decide to make a joint decision or to share equal custody of their child. After this decision, sometimes things are going as well as you would hope. In the event the arrangement is detrimental to the child(ren), we can explore other child custody options. Or if the current agreement causes conflict, having a specialist by your side can help with your child custody modification.

My extensive experience enables me to assist clients with identifying areas of conflict. I can also provide solutions that benefit your children while promoting harmony within the household.

I am prepared to take the proper actions to address the situation immediately. It is the job of all child custody lawyers to ensure the protection of the children involved.
