Gardner Child Custody & Visitation Attorneys
Throughout your child's life, your family will likely experience many changes. Some changes will not affect your custody or visitation arrangements, but others could significantly impact them. Parents often have strong reasons for relocating. If you are considering moving away from Kansas, it is important to follow the proper procedure to protect your custodial rights.
At Stockton & Stern, we know how difficult it can be to balance your children's interests with your own financial and emotional needs. With nearly a decade of family law experience, we will guide you through the process and help you reach a solution that meets your family's needs.

Child custody and visitation issues rarely arise separate from other family law matters. We will help you resolve all of the issues involved in your paternity dispute or divorce.
Relocating Your Family
The rules for relocating with your child can be complex. It is important to follow the proper steps in order to accomplish your goals. For example, if you do not give your child's other parent 30 day's notice that you intend to move, the court may force you to come back to Kansas.
We understand that moving somewhere else may be in your family's best interests, and we will help you present your case to the court. A family law judge will work to meet your child's needs, asking:
- How will moving change your child's relationship with the other parent?
- How will moving affect your child's relationships with other family members?
- Is changing schools in your child's best interests?
Our firm is founded on strong values. We will always work hard to help you reach a child custody modification solution that is in your family's best interests.
A judge can only offer limited solutions for your family. Attorney Stockton is often able to guide our clients to creative parenting plans in negotiation. This is why we will likely recommend cooperative negotiation or mediation to resolve your child custody and parenting time concerns.
