Virginia Beach Child Relocation Attorneys
Committed to Helping You Relocate with Your Child
Life is constantly changing and, if you are no longer with your co-parent and wish to relocate with your child, you are free to leave to state. However, until you have resided in the new state for the time it takes to establish residency, Virginia will continue to be your primary residence. Therefore, if your co-parent disagrees with the relocation, they may file for custody, ultimately forcing you and your child to reside in Virginia.
At The Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller in Virginia Beach, our experienced legal team can assist you with this process. Whether you are trying to relocate with your child or you are trying to keep your child in the state, you can rely on us to help you.

Relocating with Your Child
If you and your ex are in disagreement regarding your relocation with the children, matters can get a little complicated, which is why legal representation is essential. As is the case with any child custody case, whether or not a judge grants a proposed relocation depends on the child’s best interests.
Below is a list of factors a judge will consider:
- The age of the child
- The physical and mental condition of the child
- The needs of the child
- Each parent’s relationship with the child
- The preference of the child (if the child is mature enough)
- The role each parent had and will continue to play in raising the child
- The willingness of each parent to help facilitate one another’s relationship with the child
- A history of abuse
- Other factors the court believes may be pertinent to rendering a decision
If the court does not believe the proposed relocation serves the best interests of the child, you will have to bring your child back to the state if you already relocated. Moreover, the terms of your child custody agreement may change.
