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 factors, including:

  • 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 case review.

Going into the process, I was very nervous because of everything that was at stake and the ‘less-than-stellar’ experiences I’d heard people had with their attorneys. But looking back now, there is no doubt I made the right decision in working with Sean. I can now put this behind me and just focus on being a dad!
