Staten Island Relocation Lawyer

Experience is important in many areas of divorce law but none are quite as tricky as relocation law. In order to relocate during or after a divorce, it’s necessary to show to the court that it’s in the best interests of the child. Sometimes a non-custodial or joint custody parent will step in and try to prevent the other parent from relocating. That’s when it’s our job to step in and use our 40 years of combined experience in divorce law to get the best outcome for the child and for the parent who wants to move.

While relocation law varies by state, it’s obvious that the courts want a relocation which will be beneficial to the child. If not beneficial specifically, it can’t do harm to a child. This can be extremely tricky because children don’t just live with a custodial parent. They belong to the school and community where that parent has lived. When the parent moves, it can have adverse on the child in question.

Legal perspectives on relocation

Not every relocation case will be about obtaining the right to relocate. Sometimes we represent parents who believe that their child shouldn’t relocate. Thankfully we know both sides of the law very well and believe that relocation is okay in some instances and in some instances will be harmful to a child. We use our decades of legal experience and thousands of cases worth of experience to determine what is going to be best for the parent and child we represent.

Courts will want to ensure that the move is in the best interest of the child on a financial, community, parent-child relationship, and educational basis. Moving a child far away from a parent the child is very close to will of course be different from a situation where the non-custodial parent and child aren’t as bonded together. It’s a case by case basis in most instances but always remember that the court is looking for one thing: What’s best for this child? It’s not about the parents but about the children. Moving a child away from a community that they love can be damaging too. In some cases, it’s not.

Whatever your relocation situation is, we’re able to take on your case, communicate effectively with you, and determine the best possible outcome for your child. Then it’s up to us to communicate this to the court. Very experienced lawyers like our tough team of NYC divorce lawyers know exactly how to approach courtrooms and communicate your interests better than less experienced lawyers. Especially in relocation cases where your entire life hangs in the balance of the outcome, it’s vital to hire a lawyer that has worked these types of cases before.

We’re here always to help people who want to relocate during or after a divorce or for people who want to prevent a negative relocation by a parent. Either case is something we’re capable of approaching and working on with your best outcome in mind always. We’re available to call with any questions you might have about relocation. We believe that once you speak with us about this area of divorce law, you’ll never call another firm again. We’re your best stop to get a relocation outcome you truly can live with.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
