Relocation issues in divorce
When a divorce or question of custody is pending, or sometimes even following a final divorce or custody determination, one parent decides to relocate out of state with a child because of the opportunity for better employment, a need to be closer to extended family offering help, or remarriage of the individual. How do you deal with such issues in domestic relations?
Amy Weis of Babbitt & Weis will discuss “Relocation in Custody Matters” during the seminar “What You Always Wanted to Know About Relocation, Alienation, and Current Family Law Cases in Ohio” to be presented on Monday, May 12, from 1:30 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. for 3.0 hours of CLE credit, directly following the Family Law Committee meeting.
Ms. Weis will discuss when relocations arise, including identifying the possibility for future relocation and terms for decrees and other legal requirements. The presentation will also touch on advising and consulting with the post-decree relocation client, whether mover or stayer; how to proceed in bring the post-decree relocation case to the court and other important filings and notifications; and important strategy point for trying the post-decree relocation case.
Also on the program is licensed psychologist Charles E. Gerlach who will speak about “Parental Alienation.” Dr. Gerlach, who is engaged in individual and family therapy, will cover parent psychopathology; enmeshment issues between parent and child; and the therapeutic approaches toward resolution. This program will not only be of interest to family law practitioners but also to those who serve as Guardians ad Litem for domestic issues.
Gary J. Gottfried, who organized the seminar, will present a review of the current case law relevant to the practice of Family Law in Ohio to round out the program.
