Highly Skilled Lee County, Florida, Child Move-Away Lawyers

Parental relocation cases are highly sensitive. Parents often fear that a move will affect their ability to remain an integral part of their child’s life. At the law firm of Fried and Fried, P.A., we apply our years of experience and legal counsel to effectively guide clients through the legal process, while seeking to address all their concerns. We want clients to feel as prepared as possible during such an emotional time.

Ultimately, a family law judge will either grant or reject a parental relocation request based on what is determined to be in the child’s best interests. The judge will want to understand if the nonrelocating parent would be able to continue having a relationship with their child. To make a determination, the court evaluates a variety of factors, including:

  • Will the move improve or decrease the child’s quality of life?
  • Are there any concerns of domestic abuse or substance abuse?
  • Is there a legitimate reason for the move, such as better education, medical access or a steady job?
  • Will the noncustodial parent be able to maintain sufficient contact with the child?

Every move-away case is fact-specific. We have access to industry-leading experts, including psychologists and counselors to testify how your child’s best interests can be fulfilled. Our law firm offers a comprehensive approach focused on handling the underlining issues involved in parental relocation cases, including child custody disputes. A parental relocation case could potentially affect which parent will maintain primary custody. When the stakes are high, we have the skills and legal resources to help secure our clients’ best interest.
