Kentucky Relocation - Child Custody & Moving Attorney

Family Law Attorney You Can Lean On

Many family law matters are emotional at best, and volatile at worst. Our family law attorney, Ken Gibson, is trained in collaborative law. This means that he has training and experience in non-confrontational negotiations and mediation. There are a few times where this is a highly valuable skill.

If you have been divorced, and reached an equitable agreement for spousal and child support and child custody or visitation, you expect it to stay that way. But life is full of surprises. The types of surprises our law firm has seen include these:

  • One spouse is given a great job offer that he or she can't refuse — but it requires relocation to another state.
  • One spouse has a family member who has a terminal disease and needs family support — which requires relocation to another city at the other end of the state
  • One spouse was laid off and after months of unemployment was finally able to find another similar paying job — but it requires moving to another state.
  • One spouse remarries and desires to follow the new spouse to another state or country due to the spouse's job or military service.

There is a theme in the examples above. Relocation is seldom planned, is often required, and frequently requires a major parenting adjustment on everyone's part.
