When Family Law Crosses Borders
When a divorce or any other family law case crosses borders, it gets more complex. Within the country, laws vary from state to state. Outside of the country, there are often unique rules that need to be followed in order to succeed, depending on the nature of the case. The experienced attorneys of Hale Ball are dedicated to helping you get positive results, no matter what borders are crossed along the way.
Interstate Custody Lawyers
During or after a divorce, relocation to another state is not uncommon. When one parent wants to move out of state with his or her child while the other parent remains in Virginia, a specific process must be followed. The parent who intends to remain in Virginia has rights. He or she has the right to protect his or her relationship with the child. Whether you want to move away or you want to fight to keep your child in Virginia with you, our lawyers can help.
We know all applicable laws, including:
