A Team Of Experienced Family Law Professionals
Custody arrangements that were imposed or agreed on at the time of divorce or separation may not fit your family’s needs over the long term. Life changes, shifts in employment, or housing and marital status can render the existing custody arrangement unfeasible. However, changing the arrangement is not as simple as picking up and moving. The parent seeking to relocate must provide advance notice to the other parent, who has the right to object to the move. If a dispute arises, the court will ultimately have to approve or deny the proposed relocation.
Whether you are seeking approval to relocate or to prevent a proposed relocation, professional legal guidance is critical. At the family law practice of Jacobson Legal Group, S.C., in Brookfield, our relocation dispute attorney, Karyn Gimbel Youso will walk you through the process.

Navigating The Legal Complexities Surrounding Relocations
In determining whether to grant or deny relocation, judges apply different standards depending on the circumstances — in particular, who has legal custody (decision-making authority) and who has a greater share of physical placement with the children. Ultimately, the judge will decide whether the relocation is in the best interests of the children. He or she will consider several factors in reaching this determination, including:
- The reasonableness of the proposed relocation
- Any disruption the relocation would pose to the child’s relationship with the other parent
- Any alternative custody arrangements that could preserve the child’s relationship and time spent with both parents
- Whether the relocation will jeopardize the child’s stability with regard to education, extracurricular activities, child care, housing and interaction with other family members
If one parent is seeking to move the children to another state, complex legal standards may come into play. We can assist you in navigating the intricacies of child relocation and interstate custody disputes.
