Answering Questions About Child Custody And Relocation

When children are involved in a military divorce, a state family court will make a determination about custody. Generally, Missouri and Illinois family courts will order custody arrangements that enable children to have regular time with both of their parents. In cases involving one parent moving away, these arrangements may need to be changed.

If you are going through a divorce, you may have serious concerns about what type of custody will be awarded. You may be worried that you are being treated unfairly when it comes to your time with your children.

If you or your child’s other parent is planning to relocate because of military service, remarriage, a family need, a job or another reason, you may need help to understand what options you have for maintaining the best possible custody arrangements. You may need the advice of an experienced lawyer who knows military divorce.
