A few weeks ago, we talked about relocation in the context of child custody. This matter can be highly important and extremely difficult to handle. You might find yourself in a position where you need to move for work or family matters, but you don't know if you can take your child with you. On the other hand, you might not want your ex-spouse to move your child away from you, as it could threaten your relationship with your son or daughter.
In either case, we at the Law Office of Hector A. Montoya know and understand your concerns. We pride ourselves on our ability to handle child custody issues, including relocation matters and agreement modifications. We may be able to help our clients find a resolution to their child custody matter in a way that protects his or her desires, as well as the best interests of the child.
Judges have a lot of discretion when it comes to awarding custody, modifying custody, and deciding on relocation issues. The standard is always the best interests of the child. Therefore, we strive to show the judge in our clients' cases how and why their wishes further the child's best interests. In a relocation context, this may mean illustrating how the move may further or frustrate a child's education and strengthen or weaken familial relationships.
Every child custody case is different. Therefore, parents need an individualized approach to their issues. The legal professionals at the Law Office of Hector A. Montoya can fight to diligently and aggressively protect not only your best interests, but also your child's. For more information, please visit our Child Custody & Visitation page.
