Guiding Michigan Parents Through Relocation Matters

People frequently relocate to other parts of the state, the nation and even the world. These relocations can be due to new jobs, family commitments and other personal reasons. Are you a parent who would like to relocate with the children? Would you like to contest the relocation of the other parent? A child custody attorney can protect your rights and the best interests of your children.

For more than 35 years, our Howell and Brighton lawyers have sought the best possible outcomes for parents in move-away situations. At Gormley Law Offices, PLC, we are trial lawyers who do not litigate merely for the sake of litigation. We weigh the benefits litigation will have on the overall outcome based on your unique situation.

Want a free consultation? Call us at 517-219-9301, and we can discuss your case. We serve clients in Brighton & Howell and the surrounding areas.

Skilled Representation In Move-Away Cases

We are attorneys representing mothers and fathers alike, as well as custodial and noncustodial parents. We assess each case on its own merits, striving for the best possible outcome for each specific situation.

In a Michigan divorce with kids, parents cannot move more than 100 miles from their current location without permission of the court. If you would like to relocate with your kids, we can prove that it is possible to continue ties with the current community and family in the area. We can show that the move will benefit the children and be in their best interests. We can also assist you with changing school districts and related concerns.

If you would like to contest the other parent’s relocation with the children, we can prove that the move does not benefit the children. We can show that the children’s ties to friends and extended family will be severed. We can show that education could be negatively affected. We can also prove that the move impacts visitation rights and the ability to participate in child rearing.

Changing domicile with the children is a highly contested issue. Often, it can be more contentious than the actual divorce. Our attorneys provide calm, reasonable and effective strategies at this time.
