Rhode Island Relocation Attorney

Questions concerning relocation?

When a parent with primary or total custody wants to relocate to another city or state, any child custody agreement in place will need to be approved by the court. If you are a parent hoping to block or address an intended relocation, or a parent that needs to relocate with children, it is imperative that you immediately contact a respected divorce attorney. The Law Office of Patricia A. Sullivan has been protecting parents' rights regarding divorce and relocation for the past 31 years.

Work With An Experienced Lawyer

Relocation cases are often very complex, requiring the precision and dedication of experienced divorce counsel. I can explain the legal issues your case presents, and potential strategies for a successful outcome. Ultimately, for the state, it comes down to what is in the best interests of the children.

There are many issues that will need to be addressed, such as:

  • reasons for the move
  • reasons for the objection to the move
  • the child's relationship with the parents
  • proposed visitation schedule
  • distance of the move
  • cost of travel for the children

I can help ensure that your case is presented in the best light to the court.
