Dallas Relocation Attorney

Parental Relocation & Family Law

In Texas, there are certain laws and restrictions regarding the relocation of parents. Child custody orders typically require any parent who has custodial rights to a child to first obtain approval the court when planning a long-distance relocation. As Texas family law courts focus on the well-being and best interests of the child, they are often concerned with the role each parent has in the upbringing of a child.

Any request to modify these terms, including relocation, will be reviewed carefully by the courts. As such, parents seeking relocation, or parents who wish to remain a part of their child's life, should work with an experienced Dallas divorce attorney to ensure that their rights are protected and that the best possible terms are reached.

What Happens If a Parent Disputes the Relocation?

Although some cases can be amicably resolved, others may involve heated dispute. When a parent who has custody of a child wishes to move outside of the geographical restrictions in place, they must present their case clearly and convincingly. The same holds true for parents who do not have custody.

How Courts Review Relocation Requests

While there are many legitimate reasons for relocation, including a new job, the courts will always review the case to ensure that the move is in the best interests of the child.

The judge will often have to be convinced of several factors:

  • Reason for the move
  • If retaining custody during relocation is favorable to the child
  • Whether the child should remain in the same location and have custody transferred to the other parent
  • How the distance affects custody and visitation
