Solving Legal Difficulties In Parent Relocation Situations
Many difficulties surface when a divorced parent seeks to relocate. Emotional and financial concerns come to the forefront as well as legal ones. The situation can prove challenging and problematic. Perhaps the father or mother experiences a job transfer or a spouse remarries and relocates several miles, several states or even several countries away.

Addressing Issues, Finding Solutions
Mr. Keenan and his team are reliable, dependable and experienced in negotiating new and updated custody agreements. He will explain to you that Maryland residents who want to relocate must provide a 90-day notice of the move to the other parent. He is understanding and can help determine what is in the best interest of the child.
Among the issues Mr. Keenan and his team address include:
- The effect the move will have on the child: A new school in a new city means having to make new friends. In addition, the parent left behind will see his or her time spent with the child shrink.
- Matters related to the new home/location: Many questions arise related to the livability of the new home and city, reputation of the new schools and whether family or close friends live nearby.
- What the child wants: If the child is unhappy about moving, the court will take that into consideration.
