A parent in Orange County who chooses to file for a move away order must fulfill the requirements of the Family law Code. The Code states that a parent with sole physical custody of the children has the presumptive right to change the children's residence which means to move away with the children. An Orange County Move away attorney can assist you in attaining this order.

Orange County Courts do not have the authority stop that decision unless the move is detrimental to the child. “A parent entitled to custody of a child has a right to change the residence of the child, subject to the power of the court to restrain a removal that would prejudice the rights or welfare of the child.” At the Law office of David P Schwarz we are very familiar with Orange County move away cases. The quality of the custodial parenting whether both parents were cooperating with the other does not determine whether one parent can stop the other parent from moving.

An Orange County move away attorney can assist a parent in getting an order for a move away in the Orange County Courts.

It is important to note that there must be a “final judicial custody determination.” That means the Orange County Court must have made a prior final Order with regards to Custody.

The second most important factor an Orange County Judge must determine is if the move would be detrimental to the children.

It is important that your Orange County Court order states that the custodial parent has been awarded both sole legal and sole physical custody. But that still means that there is no absolute right to change the children's residence. An Orange County Move Away Lawyer can assist you in making sure that your Orange County order is correct.

A post final order decree motion to the Orange County Court requires the showing of detriment in the litigation. However, if a Orange County move away custody lawyer made an initial filing for custody then the argument for a move away involves only consideration of the standard of the Best Interest of the child.

The first order the Orange County Family court issues only deals with the Best Interest of the Child with regards to a Move away case. The Courts then have broad discretion to manufacture an appropriate parenting plan for the parents. An Orange County Move away child custody lawyer will argue on behalf of the client whether a contemplated relocation of the child is in the Best interest of the child.

At the Orange County Law office of David P Schwarz we have enormous experience in arguing on behalf of our clients the pros and cons of a Orange County Move Away child Custody Order. We have spent many years in the courtroom achieving great results for our clients with Orange County Move Away Orders.
