Oregon Child Relocation Lawyers / “Move Away” Attorneys
Any time parties have a child together, whether or not the parties were married, their lives are going to be intertwined. What happens when one of the parties needs to move to a location that makes travel for a “standard” parenting plan logistically unworkable? Generally speaking the courts look to what is in the best interest of the child when deciding whether or not allow a child to be moved.
In Oregon, relocation cases (sometimes referred to as “move away” cases) can be quite complicated. Our attorneys have substantial experience representing parties on both sides of the issue. Generally, the burden is much more difficult for a party attempting to move a child to a new location that results in more limited time with the other parent. The success or failure of these types of cases depend greatly on individual facts and careful application of the law. This is not the type of case where a person should attempt to handle court proceedings without an experienced relocation lawyer to assist.
For any “move away” case, facts are critical. Our attorneys will discuss your existing parenting plan, historical facts about your relationship, the location of the move, the reasons for the move, plans for the child during and after the move, along with many other questions. Whether you are attempting to keep your child’s parent from moving the child out of their current locale, or if you are the one attempting to move, we can assist. Call one of our relocation attorneys today to discuss your options.
What To Expect In An Oregon Child Relocation Consultation
As a service to clients, we meet with all potential clients in person, preferably with two attorneys, for the first consultation. This allows us to determine which lawyer is best-suited for any given case, based on the subject matter and the client’s personality. In addition to the client getting two-for-the-price-of-one, this allows both lawyers to meet potential clients and hear the background of each case. Although ultimately only one lawyer will handle the case, the other will then know the basics of each case and can answer questions when a client calls. We offer this initial consultation for a flat-fee of $100.00.
When starting the process for finding a lawyer for an Oregon adoption, potential clients often ask “who is the best child “move away” lawyer in Oregon” or the “who is the best lawyer for child relocation in Portland?” The answer is: the lawyer who gets the results you need. Like the rest of family law, there is not one-size-fits-all when it comes to selecting an attorney for your adoption. The best attorney for you is the one who listens to your circumstances, provides solid legal advice, and facilitates and achieves your goals.
