Relocations: Keeping Your Children The Top Priority

Family law matters can be difficult, both emotionally and logistically. Once a divorce has been finalized and child custody and support orders arranged, later modifications may be necessary. One common change is for a custodial parent to relocate to a new residence, either in or out of state. In Ohio, a parent who wishes to move to another state with his or her child must receive permission from the other parent. If you cannot obtain that permission, you must gain permission from a judge.

At Altick & Corwin, we believe that you should have access to your child. If you need to move, you should have the option for your child to accompany you. If your ex-partner wants to move, you deserve to have your voice heard in court, to try to prevent your child moving away. As experienced family law attorneys, we can provide the support you need. Call our firm at 937-608-9460 or toll free at 888-542-3148 to schedule a consultation today.

Prepared To Aggressively Protect Your Interests

We are a firm with more than 100 years of history in Dayton. That experience allows us to provide individualized case solutions, tailored to each client's needs. Though a potential relocation may seem straightforward, there are many options for compromise when it comes to child custody, including:

  • An updated visitation schedule. If your children are moving away, you may be able to get extended access to them during holidays, summers and other breaks.
  • Modification of a child support order. Because a relocation often requires a change in financial circumstances for one or both parents, you may be able to negotiate either a larger or smaller child or spousal support order.
  • Covered costs of visitation. If your ex-spouse is moving with the children and you are financially unable to visit them, your lawyer may be able to argue that the other parent should pay for your visit or pay to have the children visit you.

We can work with you to develop a workable custody solution and are prepared to be as aggressive as necessary to achieve that solution, either in or out of court.
