Long Distance Parenting & Relocation

Long Distance Parenting & Relocation Plans

In Oregon, neither parent may move more than 60 miles from the other without approval of the other parent (or an order from the court allowing the move); this prohibition is designed to maintain strong relationships for the child with each parent. However, today parties often must move for work or family reasons. If you wish to relocate outside of Oregon with your child, you should contact us today to talk about how best to accomplish such a move (for both you and your child). If you are concerned that your former spouse may be thinking of moving, contact us to talk about how to best protect your parenting plan and relationship with your child. Even if you and your former spouse agree on a move, we can help you create a long distance parenting plan that is in your child’s best interests.
