As family law attorneys, we see many cases involving a parent who wants to move with his or her child to another state or another part of Colorado. In most of these cases, the move has to do with a job opportunity, better housing, a relationship, family needs or family support. Sometimes the problem is that the child’s other parent is not comfortable with the move.

Practical Advice | Customized Plans That Address All The Issues

At Pearson & Paris, P.C., we work with parents who are trying to negotiate a relocation, during or after a divorce or in situations in which the parents were never married.

As your attorneys, we will work with you to develop a customized plan to meet the needs of your family. We can answer critical questions like:

  • As a parent moving out of state, what rights do I have?
  • What if my co-parent wants to leave Colorado with my child or children, but I’m not OK with that?
  • How exactly do you change court orders related to parenting time (or “visitation”)?
  • Will I have to go to court before I can relocate?
  • How do we develop a plan that will allow both of us to parent well?

Circumstances change, and children’s needs change. Every situation is different. We can help you address all aspects of your situation.
