Transfer & Relocation Orders

California Military Family Law Attorneys

Military servicemembers face unique difficulties during and after divorce due to their transient residency. When making decisions regarding matters such as child custody, child support, visitation, and spousal support, California Family Court examines each party's circumstances and the best interests of the child (when applicable). Military servicemembers may find it difficult to obtain custody of their children in divorce due to their lack of permanent residency while in the service. Military transfers and relocations tend to have a negative effect on custody and visitation cases, but Cutter & Lax, Attorneys at Law can help military members protect their mothers' or fathers' rights.

How can transfer orders affect me after a divorce?

If you are in the military and your custody or visitation rights have been affected due to a transfer or relocation, your best decision would be to retain a California military family law attorney to help you defend your rights and the best interests of your child. Family law judges make their custody, visitation, and support decisions based on the child's best interests, so you will need a strong advocate to argue that your child needs you to remain a part of their life, even after you've relocated.

Perhaps you have custody and the other parent doesn't want you to relocate. Maybe the other parent has custody, but you need to alter visitation rights to accommodate your move. You might even have joint custody that will be affected by your relocation. Whatever your situation may be, Cutter & Lax has what it takes to help you handle your military relocation and the issues it causes due to your divorce.
