We live in a mobile society where a full one-half of those who marry will divorce. And, with more children born out of wedlock than in decades past, children fare no better than their counterparts born to parents who, though married, will ultimately divorce.

What you should take from this is that there are many children living between two households — each managed by a single parent or parent and stepparent. Those caregivers' opportunities and desires differ as to education, employment and love (to name a few). Often, remarriage, schooling or employment will pull a parent to seek opportunities in these regards outside of the state where they currently reside. If that parent has custody (including joint custody), they must seek the court's permission to permanently move their children from this state to another.

Having been the attorney who represented the father in the Nebraska case defining the very criteria for such litigation, Farnsworth v. Farnsworth, and having been called upon to represent dozens of parents in such cases, Matt Higgins not only knows the law of removal, but had (and has) a hand in creating it.

Whether necessity has you requesting such a move or if you are the parent faced with the threat of your children being moved away by the other parent, you will need counsel. Why not hire the attorney who had a hand at the inception of the modern laws that define such cases?
