Jacksonville Relocation Attorney

One common legal issue that occurs after divorce that will need aggressive legal assistance is that of relocation. In some cases, custodial parents will want to relocate with their child out of the area, which would affect the relationship of the child with the other parent. This is one of the greatest fears of many noncustodial parents. Relocation actions often negatively affect the ability of the other parent to be part of his or her child's life. If you are the parent wanting to relocate out of the area with your child or you are the parent trying to avoid this circumstance, you can get legal help from our Jacksonville lawyers.
