Gaining Physical Custody in Relocation Case
The mother of our client’s children planned to move away for a new job opportunity, taking the children with her. She had been the primary parent, so our client wished to gain sole physical custody of the children, allowing them to remain in the DC area.
Lerch Early argued before the court that the children would be best served to stay in this area with their father. We worked with key experts to demonstrate that a move to the new location would be detrimental to the children’s interests.
The judge awarded sole physical custody to our client, allowing the children to remain in the environment where they attended school and had friends.
