Roseville Interstate Custody Attorneys
California Interstate Custody Laws
When a parent relocates from one state to another, the geographic change can have a significant impact on his or her child or children and on the other parent, particularly when the relocating parent wants to take the child or children along. While such moves are often driven by legitimate factors like job opportunities and family ties—and sometimes they happen soon after a divorce—they tend to greatly reduce the amount of time a non-custodial parent is able to spend with their children. In many cases, this creates personal and legal conflicts.
If you are concerned about how a move-away will impact your relationship with your child or children, or if you are worried about their safety, we can assist you. At Cecil Cianci Law, PC, our interstate custody lawyers in Roseville are knowledgeable and effective in dealing with complex child custody matters.
