After a divorce, a Missouri parent may find that it is necessary to seek a change to a child custody arrangement due to a desired relocation. Personal reasons, financial strains or career-change possibilities may play a role in this decision, but parents may be surprised to find that any change to a child custody decree must go through the proper legal channels. When navigating a complex custody situation, it is best to have assistance from a knowledgeable family law attorney.
