Move-Away Cases

San Fernando Valley Move-Away Attorneys

Compassionate Guidance through Child Custody Cases

After a divorce, partners often decide to move to a different city. It could be that they are no longer able to support themselves in the current location, are pursuing a new job opportunity, or want to be closer to extended family for emotional and financial support. Whatever the reason, when children are involved in a move post-divorce, it can cause great difficulty in reaching an agreement that satisfies both parents.

If you are a parent who is looking to move after a divorce, or you are in danger of losing frequent contact with your child because your former spouse wants to move, our San Fernando Valley move-away lawyers can help. At Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation, we understand how important family is, and we are committed to doing everything possible to help you achieve what is right for you and your children. Whether the move is 40 or 400 miles away, our experienced divorce attorneys can help you protect or modify your custody order.

Call us today at (818) 462-5076 for a free consultation. We are based in Woodland Hills and serve clients throughout the San Fernando Valley.

Modifying Custody Orders for Move-Away Cases

The court will determine how to approach a move-away case based on the type of custody order that is already in place. For joint custody orders, the court will hold a trial to determine if a new custody decision is in the best interest of the child.

When one parent has sole custody, the court considers that parent to have the presumptive right to move with the child. Prior to changing a custody order, the other parent would need to show that the move would be harmful to the child. This would qualify as a change in circumstances and would allow for a reevaluation of the custody order in an attempt to prevent the move.

In the event of a hearing, the court will consider a number of factors, including:

  • The child’s age
  • The distance of the move
  • The child’s relationship with both parents
  • How long the current custody order has been in place
  • The reason for the move
  • Where the child wants to live
  • The relationship between the parents

Joy is HONEST, an extremely important trait for a divorce attorney because it is tempting to tell clients he/she has a great case and bill, bill, bill. Joy does not do that. Her goal is always to settle amicably, as long as it is fair and good for her client. Joy is brilliant, from her knowledge of the law itself to emotional intelligence in the form of strategy and effective negotiations.
