Child Relocation Attorney

Oftentimes a custodial parent needs to move in order to serve the changed needs of a family. In this case, it is possible to file for relocation. Generally speaking, relocation is approximately 100 miles from the other parent who shares custody when the initial judgment was ordered.

In most scenarios, North Carolina courts do not favor relocations — it is often extremely challenging to make the case that it is in the best interest of the child that a parent relocate.

Because of the challenges, complications and nuances present in these types of cases, it is extremely beneficial to partner with an experienced attorney if you are seeking to move a child out of state or your general geographic region. For 30-plus years, Janet Welton has helped hundreds of clients with modification issues, including relocation.

She will partner directly with you to understand your goals and whether or not relocation is possible and beneficial for your family. From there, she will do everything possible to advocate for you and your loved ones in the most efficient and effective way.
