Arizona Divorce Move Away Cases

Helping Relocate Arizona Parents

If you share custody of your child and you or your ex-spouse want to move away, this can present a unique problem. By consulting an attorney about this situation, you can find out what legal rights you have and what you can do to protect them. Whether you are the custodial or non-custodial parent, you will need to address this situation as soon as possible. A move away case can be difficult for you, your ex-spouse, and your children. By seeking legal help early in the process you may be able to reach a resolution more swiftly while protecting yourself.

Arizona law is unique in that a custodial parent has the right to change the permanent residence of their child or children. However, this is subject to court approval in cases where the move may affect the rights or welfare of the child. Move away law is covered under Arizona Family Code.

Although the law may seem fairly straightforward in regards to a custodial parent’s right to move away with his or her children, this is actually not the case. This has been the subject of much scrutiny over time and the source of numerous legal disputes. Whether you are the custodial or non-custodial parent you may need a lawyer at your side to ensure that your rights are protected. You and your children deserve to have their wellbeing protected in regards to visitation and custody as it is affected by a move away.
