Child Custody & Relocation

Do you plan to relocate?

Parents with minor children that intend to divorce will need to work out a parenting plan as part of their settlement. A parenting plan contains the duties and responsibilities of each parent in regards to the child, as well as agreements regarding custody and visitation. Once the divorce is finalized, any changes to the plan will need to be approved by the court. This includes both custodial and non-custodial parental relocation. The court will only approve a relocation if it is in the best interests of the child, and will look at factors such as:

  • The impact the move will have on the child's relationship with the other parent
  • How the move will affect the child's schooling
  • Whether or not the child wants to move

If you are planning to relocate, a Lawrenceville divorce attorney at The Law Office of Robert L. Booker can explain the laws that pertain to relocation and the requirements for seeking a modification to your parenting plan. We are an experienced family law firm that can guide you through the modification process, and will provide effective representation at your hearing.

Many times disagreements will arise when a parent intends to relocate to an entirely different area or state. If the other parent considers that the move is not in the best interests of the child, a petition can be filed to prevent the relocation. If you disagree with your ex-spouse's relocation plans, we can advise you on how to challenge the move. Our firm represents both mothers and fathers in relocation cases, and will vigorously protect your rights and interests. Attorney Robert Booker is a respected Lawrenceville divorce lawyer serving Gwinnett County, and can help you resolve any child custody matter.
