Parental Relocation in Houston Divorce
Houston Collaborative Divorce Attorney
Divorce is a major life change, and there is a good chance that either you or your former spouse will seek to make a new start by moving to another city or state. If you have children, the case may become significantly more complex because the Texas Family Code has strict guidelines that govern a custodial parent's ability to relocate. Whether you are seeking to relocate as part of the divorce proceedings, or if you want to get a legal modification to an existing child custody arrangement, you may face serious opposition both from the other parent and from the court before you can carry out your intentions.
Whether or not you have the agreement of your ex spouse on the subject of moving away with your children, you can resolve the legal aspects of the situation much more easily through the collaborative law process. By keeping the court from being involved in the decision making, you will retain much more control over the final outcome. A Houston collaborative divorce attorney can help you explore all aspects of the situation and negotiate an agreement that will work in your favor. The move may be for better employment or education opportunities, to be closer to family or simply to start over. Whatever the reason, your chances of reaching an agreement will be better when you work with, rather than against your former spouse.
