Parental Relocation in Long Island
Assisting Clients in Parental Relocation Proceedings
Parental relocation is often a post-divorce issue which requires a legal handling through the courts. After a divorce, one of the parties may need or wish to relocate away from their current geographical area due to job considerations, remarriage, or to start a new life elsewhere. Unless an agreement has been signed and acknowledged by both parties earlier, only the court can permit a custodial parent to remove children out of state or to another area than that designated in the divorce
If you need legal assistance in a parental relocation matter in Long Island, we urge you to consult with a divorce attorney at the Rubenfeld Law Office about the particulars of your situation. We can review your case and advise you on the legal actions necessary to resolve the situation. Our attorneys have an abundance of legal experience in handling divorce and family law matters; our firm has been in existence since 1960.
