Planning To Move With Your Child?

Once a marriage has ended, one parent may need to relocate and desire to take his or her children with him or her. A new job, a new relationship or additional family support for a parent may be the motivation for this move. Absent the consent of the other parent, a modification of the existing court order or judgment is required to permit the move with the child.

At Newsome O'Donnell, LLC, the attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience to help you with relocation issues regarding your children.

Helping You Achieve A Better Life

The courts in New Jersey are required to follow statute and case law with respect to relocation. In order to move, a custodial parent must first establish a good faith reason to move with his or her children. The move also must not be harmful to the best interests of the children. The lawyers at Newsome O'Donnell, LLC, are knowledgeable in this area of the law and will apply the law to the facts of your case. The lawyers have successfully represented many litigants in Morristown and throughout New Jersey with respect to relocation.

You will also have to demonstrate how you will accommodate the noncustodial parent in terms of time with his or her children by extended visits and how this will affect the children's relationship with the noncustodial parent.

The New Jersey relocation of children attorneys can help you demonstrate this proof and formulate your proposal for altering your parenting plan to ensure a stable relationship with your children's other parent.

We Resolve Parenting Time Disputes

If you are protesting the relocation of your children, the attorneys can help you show how this move will negatively impact your relationship with them and how their current living situation may be more beneficial than the one the custodial parent is proposing.

Whichever side of this argument the attorneys at Newsome O'Donnell, LLC, are representing, they will consult with experts on child psychology and welfare to show how the move and changes would affect the children's overall well-being and relationship with each parent. Our team will build your case on facts and evidence to prove your side of the argument.
