Orange County Lawyer Handling Parental Relocation Disputes
If your child’s other parent is moving to a distant city or out of state and you currently share child custody, you’ll want to speak with a family law attorney experienced in child custody disputes. Failure to do so can have a negative impact on your relationship with your children.

If you oppose another parent’s proposed move, you must act quickly to give yourself a chance at preventing the move from taking place. At the Law Office of Benjamin Greenwald in New Windsor, New York, we can provide a fast, effective response to protect your parental rights.
