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.
