If both parents agree on the terms, a judge will still review the agreement during a relocation hearing with Dallas relocation lawyers.

As is frequently the case, move away cases often get contentious. Our Texas child relocation attorney fights hard to make sure the parental rights of our clients throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area are preserved. We have extensive experience handling move-away cases in Dallas.

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can a mother move a child away from the father?


    A mother may move her child away from the father under specific circumstances. If the mother does not have sole custody and there are geographic restrictions in the custody order, the move will have to be approved by a judge.

  • How far away can a custodial parent move?


    With a court order, a custodial parent can move out of the country. However, moving without order is also possible. Generally speaking, a custodial parent can move within the geographical range specified in the custody agreement, which is typically 100 miles.

  • What is a child relocation attorney fee?


    The fee depends on the case, as a more complex case will require more time to work on.
