Parental Relocation/Interstate and International Child Support and Custody
Parental Relocation Lawyer in The Woodlands, Texas
Relocation has become an issue that effects Texas families as more parents seek to move out of state or even out of the country. There are many reasons for a relocation including, a better-paying job, furthering education, moving closer to family, or remarrying.
If you are a custodial parent seeking to relocate, or you are the noncustodial parent who wants to prevent your child from moving so far away, our law firm can provide you with the guidance and advocacy that you need.
Texas courts presume that it is in the best interest of the child to have both parents involved in the chid’s life. Relocations are hard on both parents and children. These issues must be creatively and insightfully resolved, with a firm and sound emphasis on acting in accordance with the child’s best interest.
