Child Custody
Move Away Litigation


International Move Away Litigation

Some families may need to make an international move due to a career change or military deployment. Of grave concern is whether the prospective country is signatory to the Hague Convention, which can greatly impact the enforceability of child custody orders. In many international move away cases, The Provinziano Legal Team has been successful at ensuring both parents have reasonable access to the children by securing orders from the court requiring routine Skype calls, a regular, set visitation schedule, and cost-sharing for the transpiration of the children.

Moving or Relocating in Child Custody Litigation

At some point after a divorce or breakup a parent may need to move and as a result will require a change in their child custody orders. These can be some of the most difficult cases for the court to decide. Whether you are moving and need orders to protect your time or whether your former spouse or partner is attempting to move the children further away rom you, we at Provinziano & Associates understand the importance of securing detailed and specific orders in a timely manner so that you don't lose valuable time with your children.

Under California law, a parent cannot move away for a "bad faith" reason - such as depriving a child from another parent. However, a custodial parent can move away and take the children with them for a "good faith" reason - such as a better career opportunity, relocation to service in the military, or to maintain their new family unit.

If you are seeking a move or defending against a move, the Provinziano Legal Team understands the emotional toll this will take on you and your family. We will present your case to the court in a clear and thoughtful way by developing a customized strategy to address each issue relating to the move. Once in court, we will fight aggressively to achieve the successful outcome you and your children need.
