Experienced Metairie Child Relocation Attorneys

If you are intending to permanently relocate yourself and your child, or if you oppose such a decision by your child’s other parent, you need to discuss the relocation details with a knowledgeable family law attorney. The family law attorneys at Salley & Salley, LLC, can help you understand your legal options.

In Louisiana, a parent seeking to relocate with a child must meet certain criteria before leaving. The other parent is given an opportunity to accept or oppose the request. Relocation can result from a job transfer, a new marriage, a military transfer, unemployment or even the need for specialized health care. Issues regarding relocation are time-sensitive and should be addressed quickly.

Relocation issues can be emotional, and can lead to conflict. Whether you are the mother or the father, it is important to remember to keep the best interests of your child or children as your top priority. It’s helpful to become educated about your parental rights and options. Our lawyers can help.

Because our law firm is headed by a mother-daughter team and includes a board-certified family law specialist, certified by the Louisiana Board of Legal Specialization, our attorneys truly understand the importance of the relationship between parent and child. Our attorneys have over 50 years of combined experience advocating for parents in Louisiana. During that time, we have built a strong reputation in the legal community for providing our clients with quality representation and personal attention.
