Have A Child Relocation Matter? We’re Ready To Help.
When both parents have joint custody of a child, the state of Missouri allows the custodial parent to relocate with the child only under certain circumstances. Nevertheless, child relocations are sometimes allowed, either through a court order or acceptance by the court of a solution that both parents have agreed to.
At the Law Office of Amy L. Gervich, we have represented many parents in cases involving proposed relocations and other child custody matters. We provide aggressive representation at all stages of the legal process, designed to protect our clients’ rights and achieve their goals.
Achieving A Fair Solution
In Missouri, a parent wishing to relocate with a child must give 60 days’ notice to the other parent. That parent must respond within 30 days. Whatever your situation, you should get legal representation as soon as possible. The sooner the Law Office of Amy L. Gervich starts building your case, the stronger it will be.
If the other parent intends to relocate with the child without adequate legal notice, our firm can seek a restraining order to prevent an imminent relocation.
Your lawyer will review your situation and explain your legal options in plain language. In some cases, it may possible to negotiate a fair and workable solution. For example, extra time with the child could be granted to the nonrelocating parent during the holidays or summer months. Putting this type of “price tag” on your relationship with your child can be difficult. Your attorney will help you understand the factual and legal issues in your case so that you can make the right decisions.
