Relocating with a 
Child After Divorce

An Overview of Rhode Island Move-Away Laws

Often during a divorce or custody dispute, a parent chooses to relocate to another state with a child. Parents usually chose to move in order to benefit themselves and their child in some way.

Reasons may include:

  • Increased standard of living
  • Improved opportunities
  • Following a new spouse

On the other hand, a move can damage the important relationship with the parent being left behind. Because of these competing consequences, a lawyer is usually necessary.

At Moyer Law, PC, our lawyers have extensive experience with move-away issues. This experience is, in fact, necessary to assert the rights of clients who wish to relocate children out of Rhode Island. Likewise, those seeking to prevent a relocation need this same extensive experience.

Protecting your child’s interests is your obligation in any child relocation case. Moyer Law, PC can help if you are working to relocate or to stop a child from being relocated without permission.

Call us at (401) 305-2934 or contact us online to learn more about your rights and to schedule an initial consultation.

Types Of Child Custody Cases We Handle

Do I Need a Child Relocation Lawyer?

Attorney Moyer and his team have the experience to handle child relocation cases during the process of divorce, after divorce, and during stand-alone custody disputes. However, these types of situations can be the most complex, difficult, and costly litigation situations. They also require an extensive discovery process and the frequent use of expert witnesses.

Because parental relocation cases are so difficult and technical, they require the precision and care of an experienced attorney.

Questions to address during a relocation case include:

  • What is the child’s relationship with all of the family members involved?
  • What are the underlying reasons for the move?
  • Why is a parent objecting to the move?
  • What is the proposed new visitation schedule?
  • Who is responsible for the cost of travel for the children?
