Oak Brook Post Divorce Modification Lawyers

Elmhurst parental relocation and post-divorce modification lawyers

Divorce Attorneys Serving Hinsdale, Elmhurst, DuPage County, and Cook County

Divorce brings change. Families must often adjust to new residences, new surroundings, and a new way of life. It stands to reason that such changes may impact a final divorce decree. Changes in financial status may prompt a former spouse to switch careers or seek higher education. Additionally, life-altering events such as terminal illness, physical impairments, or remarriage may alter a person's ability to fulfill the terms of the original decree.

Farooqi & Husain Law Office is a respected family law firm handling post-divorce modifications for its DuPage County clients. Removal (relocation) proceedings and modifications to the allocation of parental responsibilities (child custody), parenting time (visitation), child support, and maintenance/alimony are common issues divorcees encounter. Our DuPage County family law attorneys can help you navigate the modification process, and we will explain the potential impact these changes may have on your lifestyle.

Experienced Handling of Parental Relocation Proceedings

The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) details the requirements that parents will need to meet in situations where they plan to move with their children after getting divorced. One of the main concerns with parental relocation is the potential impact on the parent-child relationship with both parents. The IMDMA's guidelines recognize the importance of proximity and access to both parents. When a parent plans to move to a new home, and this relocation would require them to modify their parenting plan, courts will be looking to ensure that any modifications made will provide for the children's best interests.

In Illinois, parental relocation is defined as:

  • A change in residence of up to 25 miles when the child formerly lived in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, or Will Counties;
  • A residence change of up to 50 miles for any other county; or
  • A change in residence to a different state up to 25 miles away from the previous residence.

Our attorneys are current on in-state, out-of-state, and international relocation requirements and proceedings. Our dedicated team can help you modify your child custody agreement as needed to provide an atmosphere that is in the best interest of your child or children. Our legal team will work diligently on creating the best solution for your family's ever-changing needs.
