Massachusetts law allows a parent to ask the Court to allow them to move to a state or country other than Massachusetts, if a “real advantage” exists in support of the move. This is called “removal”. Many parents feel the need to seek removal for familial support, changes in employment and other financial opportunities that may exist.
The Attorneys at Schwartz & Plante have extensive trial and appellate litigation in the area of removal law, including the negotiation of agreements to allow removal. Additionally, both Attorney Schwartz and Attorney Plante have had extensive trial experience in removal matters, both seeking removal, and defending against removal. Additionally, Attorney Plante has argued before the Massachusetts Appeals Court on removal related appeals.
Meeting with an Attorney at Schwartz & Plante can allow a qualified attorney to review the specific facts of your case, explain the law, and discuss with you the options that might exist with respect to your particular case.
