Modification And Relocation In Arizona

As the adage goes, the only constant in life is change. At Dorris Law Group, we understand that our clients and their needs are dynamic. We also understand that a prior court order may not always remain appropriate for their families. Whether you’re in need of modification assistance because of changing spousal support or child support laws and/or needs, Dorris Law Group can help.

Legal advice and help obtaining a modification to an existing settlement agreement or court order may be appropriate if one or both parties have experienced a significant change in circumstances. Such a change may involve:

  • A new job or job loss.
  • Other changes in a parent’s income or schedule.
  • Remarriage.
  • Relocation.
  • Military deployment.

We work with individuals and families to develop sustainable solutions that meet the family’s present and future needs. Contact us at 520-622-4866 to learn more.

Parental Relocation In Arizona

Sometimes, a new job or a change in your family may require you to move. However, if you wish to move a significant distance, it can have implications for your child custody and parenting schedule. If you have an existing court order in place, your proposed relocation must be approved by the court. At Dorris Law Group, our Tucson attorneys represent parents who wish to relocate with a child, as well as those who wish to obtain primary physical custody of their children or preserve their parental rights as the other parent moves.

As in most family law matters, the court’s decision whether or not to allow the move typically depends on its interpretation of what is in the best interests of the child. This often involves coming to a solution that allows both parents to maintain a meaningful relationship with the child, whether that involves a change to the parenting schedule, virtual visitation, or limiting a parent’s ability to relocate with the children.
