Elgin Parental Relocation Attorney

Taking Action When One Parent Wants to Move With the Children

People need to move for many different reasons. Some people may have to move great distances to find new employment. If you have custody of your children and want to move, there are a number of factors that can potentially complicate the move. Further, if you have visitation rights to your child, a move out of state or a great distance away may severely harm your relations with your children. In these situations, it is important to have strong legal representation on your side.

We are the parental relocation lawyers of Brady & Jensen. With offices in Elgin and Geneva, we represent parents in either side of a child relocation dispute and in other family matters. Relocation cases are some of the hardest types of family law cases. The parent who wants to move may have a compelling reason to leave, such as a new employment opportunity. The parent who is left behind very likely has equally compelling reasons to remain close to his or her children. As a result, there may not be much room for compromise.

Under Illinois law, the parent that wants to move must notify the other parent of his or her intent to move. This parent also has the burden of showing that such a move is in the best interests of the children. Judges have broad discretion in making decisions in this area. Therefore, your lawyer can go a long way to presenting powerful arguments on your behalf.

Our attorneys represent parents who want to move, as well as parents who oppose such a move. Regardless of your situation, we have the experience and knowledge to present the strongest possible argument in court, or reach agreement in negotiations if possible.
