Strong Representation For Parents On Both Sides Of Alabama Child Relocation Matters

Alabama takes the best interests of the children extremely seriously with regard to custody and each parent's ability to have a meaningful relationship with them after a divorce.

When one parent has been given primary custody over the child, the law provides specific protections to the noncustodial parent to preserve any visitation rights that he or she may have been awarded. There are also requirements for a noncustodial parent with visitation rights who is considering a move that could impact his or her ability to fulfill the terms of the custody order.

If your former spouse is considering a move that would make the current custody arrangement infeasible, you have the right to challenge it. These are complex cases with a lot of moving parts, and a strong argument needs to be made in order for the court to rule in your favor. It's essential that you seek the advice of a reliable attorney who knows the law and has the ability to protect your interests.

Committed To Obtaining The Best Possible Outcome In Your Case

At The Rose Law Firm, LLC, we have a substantial background in the successful resolution of complex Alabama child custody matters. We've represented parents on both sides of child relocation and move-away cases, and we know how to manage your case to a favorable outcome. Whether you are planning to move or you need help preventing one, you can rely on us to provide the representation you need.

With very few exceptions, the relocating parent is required to give the nonrelocating parent at least 45 days notice of his or her intent to move away along with specific information about the move, including the new location and all available contact information. Failure to provide sufficient notice could impact the court's decision regarding approval of the move. The nonrelocating parent only has 30 days to object to the relocation. If this deadline is not met, the court has the discretion to approve the move automatically.

No matter which side of the case you are on, now is the time to seek legal representation. We will ensure that all notice and objection deadlines are met, provided that you hire us before they have passed. We'll be there to represent your interests at every stage of the process and fight aggressively to help you reach your goals.
