Enlist the Help of a Child Relocation Attorney
Relocating children after a divorce can be devastating to children and parents who already have endured tremendous emotional upheaval. A compassionate child relocation attorney at Dunsing & Deakins, LLC can provide assertive representation to do what is best for the children.
In Colorado, courts are no longer adverse to removing children from the jurisdiction. State law now requires them to evaluate removal on a case-by-case basis using the “best interests” standard.
Dunsing & Deakins, LLC are family law veterans and have protected parents’ rights in relocation cases since 1998. They prepare clients for the complex process, present a compelling argument in court for or against the relocation, and anticipate questions the judge or opposing counsel will ask.
Factors considered in child relocation hearings
The court weighs many factors when reviewing a relocation petition, including:
- The reason for moving or objecting to the move
- Whether there is extended family or support in each location
- The educational and cultural opportunities in each location
- Whether the petitioning parent has been the primary caretaker of the child since birth
- Whether the non-custodial parent will have reasonable child visitation and be able to participate in parental decisions
Dunsing & Deakins, LLC have fought many relocation battles involving allegations of substance abuse, violence or neglect, even cases in which those claims are fabricated to facilitate a move.
Relocation can also involve interstate child custody issues. The attorneys at Dunsing & Deakins, LLC thoroughly understand and have experience with the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA).
