Chicago Relocation Lawyers

As a parent, it is natural to want what is best for your child, and ensuring their well-being often involves making difficult decisions about where they live.

Schedule a Consultation

Whether you are considering a move yourself or need to respond to a proposed relocation by the other parent, it is important to understand the legal implications and how to approach the situation in your child’s best interest.

At Corri Fetman & Associates Ltd., we understand the profound impact these decisions have on families. With years of experience in family law, our seasoned attorney brings a wealth of knowledge to guide you through this intricate legal landscape.

The Challenges of Child Relocation

For separated parents, moving more than a certain distance from their current residence or across state lines may require court approval, especially when the other parent contests the move. The primary consideration in these relocation cases is the child’s best interests, and determining this in court requires skilled legal knowledge and strategic planning.

Common Challenges in Child Relocation:

  1. Legal Complexities: Illinois law governs the removal and relocation of children. These regulations require a compelling reason for relocation to gain court approval.
  2. Emotional Impact: Relocating a child affects their relationship with both parents and can disrupt their social, educational, and emotional stability.
  3. High-Conflict Situations: Relocation requests often arise in high-conflict divorce or custody cases, necessitating sensitive handling and strong advocacy.
