Your Orange County Relocation Lawyer

Similar to any family law decision involving children, the choice to move out of state with a child is taken very seriously by the courts. If you are planning a move with your child or wish to prevent your child from being taken across county or state lines, it is important to consult with an experienced family law attorney.

At the Huntington Beach-based Law Office of Jeffrey D. Stearman, I have more than 38 years of experience assisting clients with their family law needs. If you have questions regarding move aways and protecting the best interests of your children, I will answer them. Contact my law office by e-mail or call 714-871-7778 for a free initial phone consultation.

Reasons for Moving and How the Court Perceives Them

Even if the intentions behind a move are legitimate and do not involve the purpose of driving a wedge between the child and another parent, the court may still deny moving out of California. The court will look to many factors when deciding if a move is in the child’s best interests, including:

  • Job opportunities
  • Relationship with both parents
  • Prior custody and visitation orders
  • History of violence
  • Safety of the child
  • Education of the child

At the Law Office of Jeffrey D. Stearman, I focus on child custody and child relocation laws. I will work with you to build a case that will achieve your goals.

Parenting Time in Huntington Beach

One of the main factors a court will focus its attention on during a relocation is the parenting plan that is already in use. Both parents’ past behaviors will be closely scrutinized and investigated in order to come to a conclusion that best protects the child involved. As a child custody and move away attorney, I will work closely with you to prepare you for court and your appearance before a judge.
