Relocation After Divorce – Your Rights When a Minor Child Is Involved

Relocating when you are subject to a child custody or visitation agreement has always been complex. Since the economy turned downward several years ago, many parents have faced a new urgency; the need to move for a job opportunity in another part of Texas or the U.S.

Regardless of the reason for your need to relocate with your minor child following a divorce or paternity dispute, count on the family law attorneys of the office of Len Conner & Associates in Irving, Texas. We have handled countless relocation cases involving such issues as:

  • Educational opportunities for the child
  • The medical needs of the child
  • A wish for the child to be closer to other family members
  • An employment opportunity or other change in circumstance for the custodial parent

We have a comprehensive understanding of the courts’ views on relocation and can work with investigators to gather relevant information, and then skillfully present a strongest-possible case in court.

A key consideration of any relocation case will be the impact of the move on the child. Will the child’s quality of life been improved due to a parent’s employment opportunity? What is the quality of the schools in the proposed new location? Will the child’s new home be safe and healthy? What opportunities will be lost and gained for the child in the event of a move? We can work with psychologists, social workers, and others to strengthen your case.

We understand that non-custodial parents often wish to contest their child’s relocation and have also assisted hundreds of parents prevent relocation of their child to another city, county or state.
