Relocation after Divorce

Parent and Child Relocation

When the custodial parent wishes to move away with the children following a divorce, it can be a very stressful time for all concerned. If you are on either side of this situation, you are faced with the task of either achieving an agreement or having your intention prevail in court.

Even if relations between you and your ex-spouse are friendly, this can naturally be a matter of great contention. Both sides may have a genuine wish to change or maintain the status quo, despite their consideration for the other party.

In some cases, of course, there is much bitterness already present and your ex-spouse may address the matter in a hostile manner. At The Karenko Law Firm PLLC we can help you address the situation you are facing and strategically pursue the outcome you desire.

Protecting Your Best Interests

As a lawyer with 30 years of experience, I, Attorney Karenko, will use my skill to create a compelling argument for your intentions. If you wish to relocate, I can help to show why this is an important move and how it will support the best interests of your children. If you are the spouse seeking to prevent relocation of the other parent, I can skillfully address the issue from the other side.

This can include an investigation of the relocation and whether the court would consider it legitimate or if it may be an attempt to avoid settlement obligations. I feel strongly about protecting a parent's relationship with his or her children and am creative in finding solutions. I will be sure to take of your relocation case personally.

If you are seeking to relocate or prevent your ex-spouse's relocation with the children, contact my Galveston County office today for assistance. Fill out our easy to use contact form or give us a call at (409) 515-7063 to schedule a  consultation.
