Relocations – for parents not living together, the custodial parent of the children has the right to relocate; the courts, however, can order adults not to move their minor children. This is most often applied when the parents have a binding “Parenting Plan”. Eagle Law Offices, P.S. will advocate for “what is best for the child”, while assuring that your rights are maintained.
Restraining Orders – if you are a victim of domestic violence, Eagle Law Offices, P.S. can help with the process of procuring a restraining order against the abusive spouse. If you have been served with a restraining order, we can help you navigate the legalities of the order.
Visitation – usually, separating parents agree to a visitation plan which the court will generally approve. If the parents cannot agree to a visitation schedule, the court will decide.
