We understand that few things are more emotionally draining or unpleasant than the process of dissolving a marriage; even in the most amicable of separations, you need someone in your corner, committed to defending your interests.

When one parent decides to relocate after a divorce, there may be custody, visitation and support rights that need to be managed before the move can happen.
