How a Camarillo Relocations Attorney Can Help

Due to changes in your circumstances, a move may be necessary to improve your income and provide for your children. However, there may be conflicts with your former spouse. The court must decide what is in the best interest of the child. To grant the relocation, here are some common factors that will be taken into consideration:

  • Providing a Stable Environment For Your Child: The parent must prove they can continue to provide a stable and safe environment for the children.
  • Distance: The court will examine how far the parent is moving away from the children and how it will affect the logistics of custody and visitation.
  • Age of the Children: Children under 18 will require custody of a parent who can make effective decisions.
  • Relationship of the Child With Both Parents: The court will closely examine if both parents are willing to put the best interests of the child first.
  • The Child’s Wishes: If the child is older than 7, the court will take the time to listen to their opinions either through Minor’s Counsel or mediation.
  • Reason for Relocation: The court will take a close look at the legitimacy of the move, whether it is due to new employment opportunities, medical reasons, remarriage or other reasons.
  • Extent of Shared Custody: Parents seeking relocation typically have at least 70 percent of physical custody to be granted a relocation modification. However, it is no guarantee the court will grant relocation.
