California Move-Away Custody Orders

Marin Move-Away Custody Orders Attorneys

There are any number of reasons people move on from one place to another. Family, career, or just a shot at a fresh start can be powerful motivators. However, if you are a parent of a child who is moving out of state either with you or the other parent, you need to understand your rights and obligations under California law.

If a parent relocates out of state with a child, but without a move-away order from the court, the law states that the authorities can return that child to California. This situation is clearly traumatic for the child and upsetting for everyone involved. Even more clear is that it can be easily avoided with either the grant or denial of a move-away custody order from the court.

The attorneys of Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, can provide you with the information you need to make a decision on how to proceed in situations involving move-away child custody orders, provide you with a strategy that will get you the results you need, and execute on it.

How the Court Decides Move-Away Custody Modification Cases

The court will consider a number of questions before issuing a modification of custody decision or a move-away order, such as the following:

  • Have circumstances changed since the original order for custody and visitation was issued?
  • Is the purpose of the move to prevent the non-custodial parent from contact with the child?
  • Is the out-of-state move going to be detrimental or beneficial to the child?
  • If the parents have joint physical custody, how much time has the child spent with each?

These questions and others that the court will ask do not have hard and fast answers, which is why it is important that your case be presented to the court by an experienced attorney. Our firm has assisted countless families with move-away orders in the past. We can help you too.
