Military service is one of the most common and most compelling reasons for parental relocation of separated and divorced parents in Northern Colorado. Many other life circumstances can make parental relocation necessary, as well. Continuing education needs, job reassignments, extended family care needs and other unique circumstances can lead a mother or father to petition a family law court to allow for a child custody modification.

Are you or is your child's other parent based out of Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming? Do you work unconventional shifts such as 48 hours of work followed by five days with no duty? What will such a schedule mean to your rights and responsibilities regarding your child? And what happens when you receive orders to move to another base? These are examples of a few of the challenging scenarios that many of our family law clients at The Law Office of Thomas W. Martin, LLC, are grappling with as they seek a court's approval for parental relocation and child custody modification.
