In today's mobile society, people often move to take advantage of career and educational opportunities. When a custodial parent wishes to move to another city or state however, it can spark a personal crisis for the nonrelocating parent. If the move occurs, he or she may lose access to the children.
Whenever possible, Tennessee seeks to give both parents adequate parenting time with their children. Courts in our state sometimes allow child relocations, and sometimes they deny such relocations. Whether you wish to relocate with your child or you are a noncustodial parent who wishes to retain your parenting time rights, you should seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney.

We Have The Advocacy Skills You Need
It may be possible to negotiate an arrangement that meets with court approval and gives the nonrelocating parent adequate parenting time. Typically, such an arrangement gives the noncustodial parent increased time with the child during the holidays or over the summer months. But frequently, child relocation disputes are resolved through litigation, not negotiation.
Our attorneys have extensive trial experience in Family Court. We will vigorously represent you, working diligently to protect your rights and achieve your goals.
A custodial parent cannot simply up and move a child to a distant location without notifying the noncustodial parent. If necessary, our firm can obtain an emergency order stopping such a move, pending the resolution of the matter.
