Custodial parent relocations are complex matters that affect the interests of your child

If you are a parent involved in a custody arrangement and you wish to relocate your children, or if you object to the relocation of your children by the other parent, you need an experienced attorney who can argue why your position reflects the best interests of your child. In the state of Virginia, you need knowledgeable Virginia Beach child custody relocation attorneys like Harding, Harding & Harding Attorneys at Law in your corner.

Virginia Beach and Norfolk child custody relocation lawyers fighting for the best interests of the children

If a parent must relocate, a Chesapeake child custody relocation lawyer can argue to modify the custody agreement if the relocation is in the best interests of the children.

The questions the court usually asks when making a determination of whether relocation is in the best interest of the child include but are not limited to:

  • Is the relocation necessary and valid?
  • How will relocating affect the relationship between the children and the noncustodial parent?
