Michigan Change of Domicile Lawyer

Michigan law prohibits a proposed move with your children out of state without consent.

A pre-existing order regarding custody or parenting time will restrict a change of domicile without court order or consent of the other parent. Moving children more than 100 miles from their current residence is also prohibited and the laws governing the 100 Mile Rule are similar. Exercising parenting time long distance often becomes complicated and expensive, and without compromise, the situation can quickly become contentious between the parents.

Michigan Change of Domicile Lawyer: Protecting Men's Rights since 1988 - kiss-content

Before granting a change of domicile, the courts will consider many factors such as:

  • Whether the move will improve the quality of life for both the child(ren) and parent
  • How parenting time has been handled in the past between the parties and whether a move may be used to intentionally deter parenting time
  • Whether the relationship can be preserved between the parent and child(ren)

Our skilled change of domicile attorneys can guide you through this process and ensure that your child(ren)’s best interests are the first priority. Even when the Court may be inclined to grant a change of domicile or a move in excess of 100 miles, good representation from ADAM can negotiate or litigate favorable terms if you are the "left behind" parent in issues such as transportation and extended parenting time. Contact ADAM today to discuss the basis for a change of domicile.

I wanted to share the services I received with you this past year for my custody and state transfer of my divorce case. I couldn't have been more happy with your services and complete understanding of everything I was going through with transferring my case from the state of Kentucky to Michigan. You were so thorough and precise with everything and willing to go the extra mile to take care of any questions and concerns that I had.Ryan*
