Experienced Relocation Planning Attorneys in Hackensack, New Jersey
Child Relocation after Divorce | Custody and Parenting Time Issues
In today’s ever-increasingly mobile society, change is inevitable. Your employer may ask you to relocate for a promotion or you may find a better job in a different city or state. Or you might be far from your family and need their financial and emotional support, not to mention free babysitting! However, if you are a parent and you want to move out of New Jersey with your child, or even if you are a pregnant mother, you can’t move from the state of New Jersey without the permission of the other parent or permission from the court. If you do, you can face criminal charges of interference with a custodial relationship or even kidnapping. You can be forced to move back and you can even lose custody of your child. If you are involved in a situation where you or your ex-spouse would like to relocate, we can help.
At the Law Offices of Kelly Berton Rocco, we have dedicated our practice exclusively to the resolution of family law matters since 1993. We know how difficult and emotionally draining it can be to work through custody and visitation challenges. We offer compassionate, but aggressive representation that you can trust. We’ll take the time to learn the unique circumstances of your situation, as well as your goals and objectives, so that we can concentrate our efforts on getting the outcome you want. We’ll carefully explain the law and process, as well as your options and chances of success, so that you always have realistic expectations.
Whenever possible, we’ll seek to negotiate a resolution to your dispute, so that you won’t incur needless expense or spend weeks or months waiting for your life to return to normal. However, if we are unable to get cooperation from your ex, we are always willing and able to go to court to protect your interests.
Protecting Your Custody Rights in Relocation Proceedings
We represent parties on either side of a relocation dispute. If you have the opportunity to move for a better job, or to be closer to family, we’ll work closely with to gather and present evidence to the court, demonstrating that you have a good faith reason to move, and that your motive is not intended to negatively affect your child’s relationship with the other parent. We’ll always put the best interests of your children first, and will help you put together a new parenting plan designed to give your children meaningful access to and time with both parents.
If you are a non-custodial parent and your ex wants to move away, we’ll fight to protect your relationship with your children. We’ll make certain that all mandatory procedures are followed, and will seek to work out a solution that is in the best interests of your children.
