Galveston Parenting Plan Lawyer
Texas City TX Child Relocation Lawyer
As part of your divorce settlement or court order, provisions were made for a parenting plan for the children. One parent may have been granted custody while the other has visitation rights.
The arrangement may have worked out until now, but now one parent needs or wants to move farther away, perhaps to a different county or even state. A job offer, new relationship, or desire to be closer to family, may be the reason.
Obviously this makes it harder for the other parent to see their child. Modification will not be permitted unless it is in the "best interests of the child" and other conditions are met.
Come and talk to us about your needs. It may be possible to get the other parent to agree to the move. Even so, the modification should be made official so that you are not surprised later on that the court has found you in violation of the original order.
If you are the parent opposing the child relocation, the move will be difficult. The court may grant permission to modify the plan and approve the move, while making accommodations to you. The other parent could be required to take steps to make it easier for you.
