Relocating? You May Need a Move-Away Order
When a custodial parent is planning a move out of state or further away, a move-away order, lawyers will explain, may be granted by the court. This may present a difficult situation for all concerned. At Stolar & Associates, our attorneys help our clients protect their families during move-away proceedings.

Discuss the move-away order with your lawyer today
It is extremely important that you discuss your concerns with a California family law attorney at the first opportunity, whether you are a custodial parent planning on relocating your child out of the state or you are concerned about the impact your ex's move will have on your right, as a non-custodial parent, to visitation.
If you relocate out of state without a move-away order from the court, the authorities may show up at your door someday and take your child back to California.
If you would like to speak with a lawyer about how an out-of-state move by you or your child's other parent will affect your parenting plan, please call our office at 310.853.5115 to arrange a free initial consultation.
Removal and custody: the court's view
The court will consider a number of questions before issuing a modification of custody decision or a move-away order. Examples include:
- Have circumstances changed since the original order for custody and visitation was issued?
- Is the purpose of the move to prevent the non-custodial parent from having contact with the child?
- Is a move out of state going to be detrimental or beneficial to the child?
- If the parents have joint or shared physical custody, how much time has the child been spending with each?
These questions and others that the court will ask do not have hard and fast answers, and it is extremely important that your case be presented to the court by an experienced and skilled attorney.
