Child Relocation Attorney


Divorce can bring many changes. One of the biggest is the relocation to a different city or state. Whether the move is prompted by a career opportunity, the need to be with supportive family and friends, or a new relationship, it is especially important to know your legal rights with regard to your children.

In Utah, a family court judge will generally not allow children to leave the state with one parent without the other parent’s consent. However, your case should be evaluated to determine your options for negotiating a move — either yours or your former spouse’s.

Failure to exercise your legal rights can be detrimental to your child’s welfare. The selection of a Salt Lake City child relocation attorney can help resolve many of the complicated legal issues facing divorced parents who either live far apart or may soon face the possibility of moving to a different location. Make sure your parental rights are protected as well as your child’s best interests.
