Parental Relocation

Parental Relocation Lawyer in El Paso Texas

Life is full of changes. At some point after your divorce, you or your former spouse may choose to move out of state. In these cases, the laws can be complex and hard to understand, and it is important to retain an experienced and detailed lawyer.

In some cases, the children subject of the suit are restricted to a certain county. If the custodial parent decides to move out of the county, they will need to get the permission of the noncustodial parent, or hire an attorney to have the court order changed to remove the geographic restriction for the children.

The Texas Family Code states that it is public policy of this state to assure that children will have frequent and continuing contact with parents who have shown the ability to act in the best interest of the child. Therefore, if you are considering the removal of a geographic restriction, or an incorporation of a geographic restriction, you should see an attorney, because this is a complicated process. There are several factors that need to be addressed and brought to the court’s attention in order for you to be successful.
