Assisting Parents With Child Relocation Matters

In today's mobile society, more and more people are moving out of state for employment prospects, educational opportunities or to be closer to family. As a result, requests for post-decree child custody modifications are becoming increasingly common.

At Zaslow & Sandler, LLC, our attorneys counsel clients on the various legal components of relocation, including its effect on custody, visitation and child support. Our primary objective is always to help clients assert their parental rights and to prevent animosity among family members. With more than 35 years of combined legal experience, you can count on us to provide strong legal advocacy designed to do what is best for you and your children.

Please note, you must obtain court approval before moving out of state with your child. Otherwise, you risk facing severe legal consequences.

Helping You Understand The Relocation Process In Connecticut

Parents who wish to move out of state with their children sometimes fail to consider all of the legal issues associated with relocation, including its impact upon parenting time, financial concerns regarding the cost of travel for visitation and, most importantly, whether the relocation is in the best interests of the child.

Our firm is committed to providing you with comprehensive legal guidance. During our initial consultation, we will take the time to explain the entire relocation/modification process, answer all of your questions and address any potential legal obstacles.

The Legal Process

Connecticut courts generally favor the presence of both parents in a child's life and are often hesitant to alter this arrangement. As a result, modification will only be granted where there is a substantial change in circumstances and it is in the child's best interests. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling these matters and know how to prepare and present compelling arguments demonstrating why the relocation is necessary.
