Need a child relocation attorney? We can help fight for your relationship with your child.
It’s natural: parents want to have a strong bond with their children. But, after a divorce, that becomes substantially more difficult with court-ordered visitation agreements, parenting plans and custody agreements.
This is further complicated when one parent wants to relocate to a new state or city. The parent that wants to leave wants the child to come with them. The parent that stays wants the child to stay with them. As a result, child relocation cases are, by nature, emotionally charged.
That’s why it’s important to have an experienced child relocation attorney on your side, advocating on your behalf.
Whether you’re leaving for an educational opportunity or relocating for work or, alternatively, you’re the parent who’s staying, Hipskind & McAninch will help fight for what’s important: your relationship with your child.
“I have had nothing short of a phenomenal experience working with John and his firm. John took the time necessary to understand every aspect of my complex situation and came up with a very effective and cost saving solution. Knowledgeable, professional and courteous. I’m very happy with the services I have received. My family thanks you, John!”

We have a proven track record of success on both sides of child relocation cases. That means, whichever side you’re on, we know how the other side will build their case—and we can counter their every move.
According to Illinois child relocation law, there are many factors courts will need consider when determining whether to allow the state to state relocation or not.
Ultimately, the best interests of the child are paramount. Your case needs to be centered around how the move—or, alternatively, how stopping the move—would promote your child’s well-being and safety.
These are the questions your case needs to answer:
Will the move enhance both the child and the custodial parent’s quality of life?
What are the custodial parent’s motives for the move? Is it to follow an opportunity (i.e., educational, work relocation, etc.), or merely to limit visitation of the non-custodial parent?
What are the motives of the noncustodial parent in fighting the move?
What is the noncustodial parent’s relationship with the child? What is their visitation history with the child?
Is it possible for both parents to reach a fair time sharing agreement?
Will the child’s sense of attachments be affected (i.e., familial bonds, friends, church, community) negatively or positively?
We’ll build our case around answering these questions and building an argument proving that a relationship with you is in the best interests of your child.
