Denver Relocation Attorney
Offering Compassionate & Personalized Counsel
Child custody is typically one of the most complex and contentious aspects of a divorce,
and issues can arise even years after your case has been settled. One
of the most common is relocation – when one parent wants to move
away with their child, the other parent often objects to this.
At Peek Family Law, our Denver family law attorney has extensive experience
with relocations. Whether you are the parent attempting to move, or you
are seeking to block a relocation attempt, we can provide the dedicated
and highly effective representation you need.
For a skilled attorney who works tirelessly in the interests of his clients,
call Peek Law Firm today at (303) 857-5797.
How Can I Relocate My Child?
Relocation of a minor child requires you to make a modification to your
parenting plan, which must be done through the courts. Related issues like
child support may also need to be modified along with the parenting plan, so it is important
to retain a
Denver family lawyer who can advocate for your rights and interests.
For the court to agree to the move, you must be able to prove that it will
be in the child’s best interests.
This can be challenging to prove, and will be based on a wide range of
- Relationships with the other parent, grandparents, or siblings
- Mental and physical health of all parties
- The child’s adjustment to their school and community
- The level of adherence to the parenting plan
- Any history of domestic violence
While the burden of proof is on the parent wishing to move, any parent
seeking to block the move will want strong representation to help refute
the other parent’s case. When it comes to protecting your relationship
with your child, you do not want to take any risks.
Proving that a move is in the best interests of your child can be tough
without legal counsel. Contact us today for an initial

modification of their parenting plan. Many others, however, turn into
contentious battles over the child’s future. An attorney is crucial

smoothest and most effective manner possible.
