Can A Parent Relocate With Their Child?

If you live here in Fairfax County or northern Virginia, you know that people come and go from our area with greater frequency than almost anywhere else. When one of those people is a divorced parent who wants to take his or her child along, the situation can quickly become contentious.

According to Virginia law, a parent intending to relocate with a child must provide the other parent with at least 30 days prior notice of his or her intention to move. If your child resides primarily with his or her other parent, you need to act quickly to stop the parent from moving and avoid losing access to your child.

At Russell W. Ray, PLLC, we want to help you do what is best for your family. We know that the changes following a divorce are difficult to handle, so it is important for you to have consistent contact with your child and to be able to provide for their well-being.
