Relocation of a Child in Cleburne

Cleburne Divorce Attorney Providing Assistance

After individuals with children get divorced, there are often many issues that arise related to child custody and visitation. One of those issues occurs when one parent wants to relocate with the child to another geographic area, specifically when this creates a great distance between the child and the other parent. This can lead to heated legal disputes over whether the relocation should be allowed.

Some individuals have child custody agreements (effective through court orders) that restrict them from moving to other geographic areas. Even when no such restrictions have been set, the mother or father who wants to move to another geographic area with the child could still be prevented from doing so if the other parent successfully challenges this relocation in court. Restraining orders can sometimes even be used to stop a parent from moving with the child before a court decision is made on the matter. It is important to be aware that the parent who plans to move away with the child must provide the other parent with the appropriate amount of notice beforehand.

Whether you are a parent who wants to move away with your child or you are the parent who is trying to prevent relocation from occurring, it is important that you work with a qualified lawyer. By turning to the Law Office of Kimberly A. Baker, you can work with an experienced Cleburne family law attorney who can help you argue your case in court and fight for the best interests of you and your child.

How the Relocation Decision Is Reached

In the state of Texas, various factors are used to determine whether relocation should be allowed. A few of these include the reason for the move, the best interest of the child and how the relocation will affect the child's relationship with the other parent who is not moving. In some cases, it might be determined that the move is in the child's best interests, such as if certain needs of the child can be better met in the new location. There are many reasons a parent might want to move to a new geographic location (such as another state) with a child. The parent might want to take advantage of a job opportunity, be close to other family members who can provide additional support or to take the child out of a harmful environment. It is important to note that there are also many situations in which one parent might try to relocate the child simply as retaliation against the other parent.
