Portland Attorneys for Relocations / Move-Aways

Experienced Representation for Child Custody Cases in Oregon

As is the case with most states, Oregon family courts are hesitant to allow children to move away from either of their parents. Relocation cases are typically extremely difficult and costly for all parties involved. When a parent must move to be closer to family or to take a job, custody and parenting time most likely needs to change. Often, this is a change that will significantly impact the lives of the children and the other parent. Whether you want to move or stop the other parent from moving, it is important that you consult an experienced family law attorney.

Parenting Plans and Relocations: What You Should Know

Changes made to parenting plans and custody arrangements are legally binding. Make sure your rights as a parent are respected and your child’s needs are appropriately met. As family law lawyers experienced in handling child custody modifications, including relocations, we can provide the counsel and advocacy you need. The sooner you get in touch with a Portland family lawyer from our firm, the better.

Can I Modify My Parenting Plan?

Parenting plans are frequently modified to meet the changing needs of the children and their families. As in all child custody issues, the courts will seek to achieve a resolution that is in the child’s best interest.

Changes that could prompt modification of a parenting plan include:

  • Relocation of one or both parents
  • Change in time spent with one or other parent
  • Change in custody arrangement
  • Career change
  • Change in the child’s life

Relocations or Move-Aways

When one parent needs to move out of the area, for any reason, the changes requested are called relocations or move-aways. Moving out of the agreed-upon area is a significant change that may warrant a change in both the parenting plan and the child custody agreement. If your child’s other parent is relocating, or if you believe that you may need to relocate, it is imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. Our firm is happy to help.
