Hillsboro Attorney for Child Relocation
It is not uncommon for adults in the U.S. to move around the country because of work, family, education or one of many other reasons. Relocating following a divorce, however, can be extremely complicated — it often involves taking a child away from his or her mother or father. At McNeil & Goldstein, our experienced Hillsboro attorneys for child relocations provide help to custodial and noncustodial parents seeking to obtain or prevent approval to move.
Oregon Lawyers for Move-Away Orders
Oregon requires parents who wish to move 60 miles or more away to inform the other parent and the court as soon as possible. After notice is given, the court may scrutinize the reason for the move and will evaluate whether the move is in the child's best interests.
Questions the court typically asks include:
- Will the move be beneficial for the child?
- How will important relationships in a child's life be affected?
- Is the move meant to punish the other parent?
- What is the current parenting time plan?
- How will the distance affect the child's relationship with the other parent?
