Child Relocation Lawyer
A parent is relocating if he or she seeks to relocate the children: more than 25 miles from the child’s current primary residence in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, or Will Counties; more than 50 miles from the child’s current primary residence in any other Illinois county; or to a residence outside Illinois that is more than 25 miles from the current residence from the child’s current primary residence in any county. If the non-relocating parent agrees to the relocation, he or she signs a notice, and the parenting plan is modified. If the other parent does not agree, the parent wanting to child relocation must petition the court for permission.
If you have a custody or parenting time order, you have rights. Call Boyle Feinberg Sharma, at 312-376-8860 to learn more about those rights and how we can help you. We have offices in Chicago and Arlington Heights, Illinois, to serve you.
How The Courts Respond To Move-Aways
Relocation is one of the thorniest issues divorced parents deal with. The wise course of action is to communicate your intentions and resolve differences before they become serious — and seriously expensive. At Boyle Feinberg Sharma, we help families enter into this conversation.
We help families to plan relocations and also to respond to them. We are skilled at petitioning the court for parental responsibility modifications or resisting a move that would not be in the best interests of your children. It’s important to remember that both sides have rights. Our attorneys would be pleased to help you defend yours.
