When It Comes to Child Custody Cases, Preparation Is Critical

Relocation: Modifying Your Existing Child Custody Agreement
If you have primary custody of your child and wish to relocate outside Sacramento County or the state, there are steps you need to take to modify your existing child custody agreement.
Here are some important things you should know when relocating:
- Although you have every right to move whenever and wherever you wish, it’s important to remember that the court will decide whether your child should be allowed to move with you.
- If you and your former partner can reach an agreement regarding custody and visitation, the process can move along smoothly. However, the other parent may contest the proposed move and push for the court to determine new custody orders.
- It is important to know that under recent law, every parent has a right to have their custody determination made at trial.
Because of this, it is absolutely critical to come prepared to those proceedings with the assistance of an experienced child custody or child support lawyer. There is no better way to achieve favorable results.

Regardless of the circumstances, we can step in and assist you in pursuing the most favorable custody order. When you reach out to our team, we will clearly explain your options and work towards building a strategy to protect your financial interests during divorce — whether that means reaching a settlement with your former partner or pressing the all-important issue of support with the goal of achieving favorable results.
