Relocation Attorney in Phoenix
Representing Parents in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley & The Greater Phoenix Area
In 2010, the Arizona legislature amended state code 25-408, which governs many parental rights and custody issues. One of the major functions of this law is to help the court when ruling on relocation matters pertaining to minor children. As family law attorneys in Phoenix, we at Rader, Sheldon & Stoutner, PLLC have seen time and again that relocation of a parent causes some of the biggest battles in family law.
Are you considering a relocation? Has your child’s other parent indicated that they might be moving? Contact us at (480) 719-2831 for representation in the fight to protect your parental rights.
What the Court Considers in Relocation Cases
The court’s top priority is to safeguard the interests of the minor. The court wants to ensure that the relocation decision of a parent best serves the child’s life and well-being, and that one parent doesn’t pursue relocation to punish the other parent by making it hard to see the child.
The court must determine what’s best for the child by analyzing a variety of factors such as:
- The mental and physical health of each parent
- Whether either parent has abused the child in any way
- The ability of each parent to provide a stable, loving environment
- How the child gets along with each parent
- How the child will adjust to a new home and community
- If the child’s life will be enhanced by moving
