Parental relocation is a factor to be reckoned with in many divorces and divorce modification matters. More divorcing parents are moving across state, across country or even across oceans, while seeking to maintain a strong bond with their child.
Attorney Carol Weinstein Boileau has extensive experience dealing with parental relocation matters that cover virtually all permutations of parental relocation matters.
A recent parental relocation appellate case that she handled ultimately allowed a custodial parent to move out of the country with her young child. The court’s decision influenced parental relocation matters throughout Massachusetts. Divorce lawyer Carol Weinstein Boileau is one attorney who is fully prepared each step of the way and who brings her entire 40-plus years’ experience and fluency in the law to each one of her cases.
Former Regional Counsel for Massachusetts Child Custody Cases
She served as a former regional counsel for the state of Massachusetts, handling child custody and guardianship matters for the state and supervising a staff of attorneys dealing with the tough — and sometimes heartbreaking — issues concerning children and families. This is experience that she brings to each individual case, along with an unswerving commitment to minimizing the impact of a divorce, a move across state or a divorce modification on any involved child.
