Relocating Children In Divorce Agreements

Typical divorce agreements often include stipulations about relocating while having majority custody of shared children. This is meant to ensure that both parents are able to see their children in accordance with their divorce agreement. When one parent is looking to move to a new location outside of the divorce agreement, however, you need an experienced attorney like the ones at Funk & Wendlinger, LLC.

A custody agreement is meant to uphold the best interests of the children involved, which is why we treat things seriously when someone is looking to act outside the initial agreement or to modify the agreement. Our years of experience have taught us how to protect the best interests of the children, as well as our client.

What A Proper Relocation Looks Like

Under Indiana law, if one parent wants to move with their child, they need to first file a notice with the court of their plans to relocate outside of the custody agreement. Once they file a notice, the other parent has an opportunity to object. From there, each parent has a different goal to achieve: the moving parent must prove that the relocation is legitimate, especially if they plan to move out of state, and the remaining parent needs to prove to the court that their interest in parenting time is more important than the move. 

No matter what side of things you are on, we can help you by reviewing your case and determining what needs to be done to achieve your goal. In addition to helping your case in typical proceedings, we can also help you when things do not go according to plan. In some cases, the moving parent simply moves without abiding by the agreement. If this happens with you, we know your rights and what to do to protect them.
