Burnsville Relocation of Parents Attorneys

Meinerts Law Is Ready to Assist You in Dakota County

Under previous Minnesota law, a person with sole custody of a child was presumed to have the right to move outside the state. However, the law changed on January 1, 2007, to restrict custodial parents from relocating unless the parties agree, or the court approves the move.

Whether you are a custodial parent that is looking to relocate or a co-parent that is looking to challenge a petition to relocate, Meinerts Law is ready to help. Our firm provides award-winning counsel in the family law practice area and is well-versed in how to articulate our clients' voices both in and outside the courtroom.

Relocation of Parents & Children

When petitioning the court for permission to relocate for reasons such as a new job or relationship, the custodial parent must prove that the move is in the best interest of the child. The court will consider eight factors prior to making a decision.

These factors include:

  • The child’s relationship with siblings, custodial and noncustodial parents
  • The impact the relocation will have on the child’s development
  • The feasibility of preserving the relationship between the child and the noncustodial parent
  • The child’s preference
  • The pattern of behavior exhibited by the custodial parent in encouraging a relationship with the other parent
  • The degree of benefit to the child’s quality of life
  • The reasons parents present when seeking or opposing the relocation
  • The effect of the relocation on the safety and welfare of the child

At the Meinerts Law, we represent parents seeking or opposing the relocation of a child out of state. Working with the best interests of the child in mind, our trusted team of legal advocates provides compassionate and comprehensive family law services.
