Naperville Child Relocation Lawyers

Child Removal Attorneys for Naperville and DuPage County

In today's technological society, the job market is fluid and dynamic. Due to the nature of the mobile workforce, sometimes divorced parents feel the best way to start a fresh life is to pack up the family and relocate to another part of Illinois or even to another state or country. Understandably, when children are faced with the possibility of relocating, this can cause emotional strain to both parents.

If you want to move with your child, you will need to petition the court to allow you to move:

  • More than 25 miles to a new home in Illinois from a current residence in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, or Will County;
  • More than 50 miles to a new home in Illinois from a current residence in any other county; or
  • More than 25 miles to a new home outside of Illinois from a current residence anywhere in the state.

The Naperville law firm of Sullivan Taylor and Gumina, P.C. can walk you through the appropriate steps if you are considering relocation as an option for your family.

It is important to remember that child relocation does not just affect child visitation or parenting time rights, but also the childrens' education, religious upbringing, and medical decisions. The court will determine what is in the children's best interest, which may or may not include a change of allocated parental responsibilities.
