Illinois Relocation And Child Removal Laws
If you are a custodial parent seeking to move with minor children to another state, it is critical that you understand your legal rights and obligations. Illinois law requires that custodial parents obtain the consent of noncustodial parents or obtain prior court approval if they wish to move to another state with minor children.
If you are a noncustodial parent seeking to oppose a relocation, or if the custodial parent has already moved without your consent (and without court approval), contact an experienced family law attorney at Lake Toback immediately to determine your best course of action.
Our attorneys excel at handling cases involving complex custody and visitation issues. We have decades of experience in matrimonial law and have helped many clients protect their rights in parental relocation and child removal disputes. You can rely on us to aggressively defend your rights.
