We represent parents at the following times:

If you are seeking to move with your child, it is advisable, if possible, to address this during the divorce case. There are additional complexities to relocating after a divorce has been finalized that make it more difficult.
Factors Considered in a Child Relocation Case
Colorado family courts consider many factors in child relocation cases:
- Educational opportunities for the child
- The age of the child
- The preferences of the child
- The reason for the move (Is the parent moving for an employment opportunity — or another reason?)
- How the relocation will affect the noncustodial parent’s relationship with the child (Will the noncustodial parent still be able to maintain a close relationship with the child?)
Choosing the right attorney: Relocation cases are the most challenging cases for family law courts to handle. It is important to choose an attorney who has experience handling these cases. Not all attorneys do.
Most relocation cases require an expert to testify regarding the child’s best interests. Working with that expert is a skill that many attorneys lack. Scardina Law takes great care to research every aspect of a relocation case and develop a strategy aimed at reaching your goals based on the judge, the expert, and the particular facts. We leave no stone unturned to protect your relationship with your child.
