Parental Relocation After Divorce

If you need an Omaha parental relocation attorney, contact Higgins Law at 402-933-7600 to schedule a consultation.

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

What you should take from this is that many children live 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 just a few variables). Often, remarriage, schooling or employment will pull a parent to seek opportunities in these regards out of state. If that parent has custody (including joint custody), he or she must seek the court’s permission to permanently move the children from this state to another.
