Removal of Children

Removal of Children

The law commonly refers to the act of leaving the state with your child "removal." When a divorced parent desires to move from Massachusetts with his/her child(ren), he/she must either (1) receive permission from the other parent or (2) seek permission from the Court. If the matter is litigated, the parent seeking to relocate must demonstrate that the move would be in the "best interests" of the child(ren). For obvious reasons, "removal" cases are often the most hotly-contested and emotional matters that are litigated in the Probate & Family Courts.

Attorney Summers has considerable experience litigating removal cases and is well-versed in the intricacies of removal statutory and case law. While Attorney Summers encourages out-of-court settlements between parents, he is a skilled trial attorney who can tactfully litigate a removal case from initiation through the post-judgment phase.

If you desire to relocate with your child(ren), or if your child(ren)'s other parent has expressed a desire to relocate or has served you with a Complaint seeking removal, contact Summers Family Law for a free consultation and assessment of your case.
