Child Relocation

While a parent can move wherever he or she chooses, the court and the non-custodial parent have an interest in whether and where a child is relocated.  Relocation may help one parent but that does not necessarily mean it will be in the best interest of the child.

The attorneys at Stiles Ewing Powers PC have broad experience in dealing with child relocation cases both within Virginia, out of state, and out of the country.  We represent parents on both sides of the issue:  parents who wish to relocate with their child and parents who wish to prevent their child from moving.  Our experienced attorneys will look at the circumstances of the current and proposed relocation and can offer advice on how a court is likely to view a relocation request.  We guide our clients through the process of trying to reach an agreement between the parents and seeking a modification of a court order.
