Parental & Child Custody Relocation Law in Texas

The best interests of the child underlie child relocation laws in Texas as well as every other jurisdiction in the U.S. In your initial child custody agreement, the terms were made with the child's interests in mind. Therefore, any modification to this agreement must consider the child’s interests as being of utmost importance.

There are a few methods for handling moveaway custody cases:

  • Reaching a custody agreement with your former spouse. If both guardians are ready to create a parenting plan and visitation schedule, then the agreed-upon plan will be approved in court quickly.
  • Taking the relocation dispute to court. Parents can choose to file their case with the court and leave the decision of relocation with custody to the attorneys and child relocation laws.

A child relocation lawyer is your advocate through this process, which usually starts with a custodial parent relocation letter. It must contain specific information and comply with certain conditions to be valid, including:

  • The date and time of the move;
  • The new address;
  • The reasons for the move;
  • Give the letter to the other parent within 60 days of the move;

After this, a judge will review the order and decide according to Texas child custody relocation law.

How Do Texas Courts Review Petitioning for Parental Relocation?

In the case of a dispute, the custodial parent can file a move-away case, during which both parties will have the opportunity to present their arguments for or against the proposed relocation.

At this stage, a parental relocation attorney with experience representing clients in child custody and relocation hearings in Texas will be of great benefit to both parents. When deciding the merits of relocation requests, judges will consider whether:

  • The move will provide better financial opportunities for the child;
  • The move will provide a better opportunity for the child todevelop a certain skill;
  • The move will provide better educational opportunities for the child;
  • The non-custodial parent has failed in their child-rearing duties;

Before the hearing, your law firm will prepare to present the strongest case possible.

Our Successful Cases

Following are examples of some of our recent results:

Obtained a not guilty verdict for a client criminally accused of domestic violence. The criminal matter would have had an effect on the final custody determination. Halina and her team helped the client in his criminal matter to ensure that we could fight for him to obtain more time with his child moving forward.
We overturned a temporary order of custody returning a child into primary possession of his father prior to a final determination hearing.
We returned a baby girl to her mom after they were separated for a year because of false accusations of the father. The mom was reunited with her younger daughter as the full time custodian. She was also able to obtain expanded visitation rights with her oldest daughter who is in the primary custody of her father.
Won custody on a pretty tough case. A child was taken from his mother where he lived his entire life. The father was on the run staying at various trailer parks and hotels. We were nervous that we would not be able to serve him. We worked with our local investigator. We found the child and the father, served him, and were able to reunite the mother with her child.
We were able to give temporary custody to a woman who was being verbally and physically abused by her husband. She is an immigrant and he would consistently use her immigration status against her by telling her he would have her deported and take her son. When she was ready to leave he tried to file orders of protection and made up allegations. We were able to file an emergency motion asking for our own order of protection, asking that the mother be named temporary primary guardian and we won.
We were able to reunite a child with his father. In this case, the child was in the primary custody of the mother and the father had a right of visitation. We appeared at a hearing where testimony was taken from the mother and the father. We also had a home study conducted on the home of both parents. We found that the mother was neglectful in that she did not help the child with his homework, she allowed him to play endless hours of video games, and the child sustained bruises and burns in her custody. After the hearing, the judge ruled that the father should be the primary guardian while allowing the mother visitation rights with the child.
Represented a man in a child custody matter. During the pendency of that matter, his girlfriend accused him of family violence. We defended the man in his criminal activities. In that action, there was no proof of violence. No photos of the injuries and no medical records documenting any injuries. The complaint was made almost 1, 1/2 months following the alleged incident. A full criminal trial was held. We held a full criminal jury trial. The man was acquitted on all charges.

These are only a few of many examples
