Washington Relocation — Out-Of-State-Custody Lawyer
Before you decide to relocate with your child during or after a divorce, you need to obtain legal advice and a complete understanding of the law that governs your ability to move when a parenting plan or custody order is in place. There are a series of very specific deadlines that must be met in the event of a relocation, so please do not delay in seeking legal advice.
At O'Brian & Associates, our attorneys can advise you on the best way in which to legally relocate or prevent the relocation of your child. Give us a call today to discuss your specific case. We serve clients on the Eastside and throughout the Seattle area.
What Procedure Must Be Followed In Relocation Cases?
Our firm has represented both moving parents and parents objecting to the move. We understand both positions and can aggressively fight for you.
Before a move can be granted, a Notice of Intent to Relocate the Children must be filed by the moving parent. The other parent must file an Objection to the move or it will be automatically granted. If an Objection is filed, a hearing must take place to determine whether or not the move will be initially granted or denied. If granted and the objecting parent still objects to the move, the matter is set for trial. In King County, we are currently on a fast track relocation trial calendar, so cases move quickly.
