Yonkers Child Relocation Lawyer

When married and sharing in family life together, spouses make decisions on where to live without involving courts. Since both parents will be moving with the children, there’s no need to involve a lawyer in most cases. For divorced couples, things can get complicated very quickly when one parent wants to move away from a parent with joint or full custody. This is where a lawyer needs to come into the picture and clarify things for both parties.

Our experienced legal team has 40 years of experience helping couples navigate through the emotional turmoil of divorce. A divorce itself is traumatizing enough without having to wonder if your legal team is managing things properly and looking out for your best interests. When you contact us to help you through your divorce, we can take care of any aspect of that divorce, from custody, to relocation, to alimony.

Relocation is one of the most difficult to deal with for clients. Almost any parent is already looking out for the best interests of their children. It’s difficult to have to “prove” that your relocation is something you’re doing to help both you AND your child. That’s why it’s our job to go to the court and show them why your move is going to help your child both financially, emotionally, and educationally. Some parents move specifically to help children while others simply want a change of scenery from the place they’ve been attached to during their marriage. Whatever the reason for your move, we take on your case diligently and prove to the court exactly why the move won’t harm your children.

In other instances, a non-custodial parent wants to prevent a move. It’s our job to take on those cases, too, and show exactly why a move is going to harm a child. We believe strongly in the right of parents to relocate but we also know that not every move is going to be a good one for a child. In order to prevent a move, we show the court exactly why the move isn’t in the best interests of the child. In some cases, it will be because a change in school might unfavorably affect a child’s grades and future. Sometimes a move isn’t good because the child is very attached to the parent they will be moved away from. Whatever the situation in your case, we will prove to the court why you’re the parent who knows best in this situation.

These cases can be very emotional for both parents and we understand that. We’re master negotiators and work as much as we can so that both parties reach a sound agreement before it must go to court. In all cases, we attempt to avoid a courtroom if it can possibly be helped because agreement will always be better than having to prove a parent’s case in court. We work with both parents as much as they will allow so that the best interests of the child will be represented in the decision parents arrive at. Rest assured, though, when agreement can’t be reached we will aggressively pursue your case in court and show exactly why your side of the story is the right side. Call us today and let us help with your relocation.

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.
