Visitation and Relocation

Respected New York Family Law Attorneys
Handling Child Visitation and Relocation Matters

Visitation and relocation are sensitive matters. All parents want to spend time with their children and have an influence on the decisions that impact their growth and development. At Weinstein, Kaplan & Cohen, P.C., in Garden City, New York, we have the skill and insight to help parents establish reasonable parenting time schedules and deal with relocation matters.

  • Child Visitation - In most situations, a child parental time schedule is established at the time of the divorce. However, these schedules may need to be modified as children increase activities at school and with friends. In addition, there are often disputes about whether a parent selecting not to exercise their right to parental time should be allowed to maintain that right. We strive to protect children's interests and mother's and father's rights when representing clients in child parental time matters. It is important to understand that Court places the interests of the child foremost in any visitation matter.
  • Relocation - In a society that is becoming increasingly mobile, parental moves are becoming increasingly common. Relocation cases are factually sensitive. The focus on these cases is what is in the best interest of the child. However, there are cascading effects on many aspects of a divorce agreement. When a custodial parent is allowed to move a child out of state as a result of a remarriage or a job, it can trigger changes in child support, child custody, visitation, and alimony.

The overriding concern in all parental time division and relocation matters is what is in the best interest of the children. We work closely with our clients to protect their interests and the interests of their children as they consider visitation and relocation issues. We have represented numerous families dealing with these issues and have the experience and insight necessary to effectively resolve these complex issues.
