There are certain circumstances in life that may prompt a need for a change of scenery. Unfortunately for some, relocating to a different area might not be as simple as finding a new place to live. For parents in Colorado, a need to relocate could also bring about a need to pursue modifications to an existing child custody agreement. Since a similar process can be complex, a parent may find it beneficial to seek guidance from someone with experience in such matters.
There are numerous scenarios in which a parent may feel that it is necessary to relocate, ranging anywhere from a change in employment to a desire to move closer to family. However, prior to moving to a new location, the court will generally expect a person to notify the other parent of the decision. In some cases, the move might not have an impact on the current visitation schedule, or both parties may be able to reach an acceptable arrangement through negotiations.
