An attorney who will fight for your family
The terms outlined in a divorce decree are most likely to change as circumstances change in the lives of the parties involved. One common change that takes place after a divorce with children involves the relocation of children. This happens when a parent with custody of a child or children moves to a new location for a better job, a new home, or even due to remarriage, among other reasons.
Relocation cases are complex and require the knowledge of an experienced Mesa family law attorney. At Brown, Naegle, Crider & Jensen LLC, we'll fight for your rights and your family's interests during this complex time.
Appropriate notice and relocation requests
Arizona law dictates that specific steps should be followed when a parent plans to move a child more than 100 miles away. Appropriate legal procedures and court filings are required in order to comply with the law and avoid being held in contempt of court. This includes giving a 60-day notice by certified mail in some circumstances. Relocating without following the proper protocols can jeopardize the relocating parent's custody of the child.
