Suffolk County Relocation Attorney

Relocation Attorney in Bohemia, NY

Relocation can be one of the most significant post-divorce legal issues. When children are involved in a divorce, the matter is complicated. All parties work to mitigate the effects of the split on the child or children. Child custody and child support structures are developed to maintain a certain level of normalcy. Every so often, a parent requests to move far away from the noncustodial parent with the child, making an already complicated situation overwhelming. Both parents have the right to be an ongoing, substantial part of their child’s life. When a child may not see one parent for weeks at a time, ex-spouses can easily find themselves litigating the matter in court.

If you are a parent that needs to request relocation, you may have a tough road ahead. The noncustodial parent may take legal action to block your request and it could work. If you are the noncustodial parent objecting to a move, we understand that your relationship is at stake and will fight for you. Whichever position you are in, our office is here to help. The Law Offices of Susan A. Kassel, P.C. has over 25 years of experience fight for clients. When it comes to your children, experience matters, contact The Law Offices of Susan A. Kassel, P.C. for a consultation today.


Important Factors For Child Relocation

Relocation is one of the most complex topics for a court to hear. There are no guidelines or calculations that give a party a clear answer as to what will happen. The court will always act in the best interest of the child. Relocation is a somewhat subjective choice for a court. It is not easy to convince a judge that relocation is best. The court will take into consideration many factors regarding the child, including:

  • The change in quality of life because of move
  • The bond with each parent
  • The impact of the move on the relationship with extended family members
  • The impact of the move on the relationship with the noncustodial parent
  • The disruption to the child’s social and academic life

Accordingly, the court will consider factors related to the parents, including:

  • The reason the custodial parent requests the move
  • The reason the noncustodial parent opposes the move
  • The change in quality of life for the parent

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
