Divorced parents petition courts for the right to relocate and reside outside Arizona for a number of reasons — some legitimate, some not. These reasons can include remarriage, business or military transfer, job-seeking and the urgent need for specialized health care that is only available in another state.
Some parents behave irresponsibly, going outside the legal system to spirit a child across state lines in what amounts to a virtual abduction. Others realize the need to pursue legal channels and do things right the first time, continuing communications with the co-parent left behind and serving the best interests of the child.
A parental relocation with a child from a previous marriage can be a heart-rending situation. So can the denial of a move to relocate. In either instance, the competence and compassion of a skilled divorce modification lawyer can cushion the blow and create ways to keep a family together, despite these circumstances.
