For many divorced couples, the complications do not end once the divorce is finalized. One wrinkle often overlooked by each spouse during divorce proceedings is the possibility that one of the parents will have to relocate at some point. And any parent who has custody of a child or children and is planning to relocate must attain court approval to do so, which is a potentially long and contentious process.

At the Law Offices of Michael Catalanotto, PC, we are experienced in winning relocation cases and helping the parent prove the two most important elements in relocation cases: That the relocation is in the best interests of the child or children involved and that it will not greatly inconvenience the non-custodial parent. While some parents attempt to win relocation rights on their own because relocation does not appear to be as big a mountain to climb as divorce, the truth is it is an extremely difficult and complicated procedure, one which a lawyer should handle.

The Law Offices of Michael Catalanotto, PC offers free consultations and takes pride in providing one-on-one attention to clients throughout New York. In addition to handling New York relocation issues, our staff can provide you expert counsel and personal guidance on dozens of other legal issues.
