Chelmsford Lawyer for Interstate Parenting Arrangements

When divorcing parents or parents who have already been divorced live in separate states, it presents a unique set of challenges for parents, children and the law. Issues of child support and child custody do not go away when parents cross state lines; it is crucial to make sure that parents continue to have access to their children and that children are properly cared for and supported.

At the Law Office of Peter V. Lawlor, PC, our Chelmsford attorney for interstate parenting arrangements represents mothers and fathers, providing them with representation from a lawyer with more than 30 years of experience in family law. We are prepared to resolve even the most complex issues involved in multijurisdictional child custody and child support cases.

Providing Personalized Service No Matter Where You Are Located

Our practice in interstate parenting extends well beyond the borders of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. We are capable of representing parents in matters in jurisdictions throughout the United States. Distance does not prevent us from providing our clients with the personal service and accessibility our practice is built upon; you can rely on us to keep you informed of your rights and options as we tenaciously pursue an outcome that is in the best interest of you and your children.

Factors Taken Into Account When Considering a Proposed Move

Court approval for parental relocation and interstate removal will be granted only if the change is deemed to be in the best interest of the child. Factors that will be considered when examining a proposed move include:

  • Family support
  • Social advantages
  • Financial opportunity for parent
  • Familial opportunity for parent

The parent who does not move may be eligible for child support modification or other changes to prevent him or her from bearing an undue burden in the course of seeing his or her child. The move of one parent is not permitted to prevent another parent from having access to and a relationship with his or her child. We are skilled at seeking and obtaining accommodations to protect the parental rights of our clients.
