Relocations and move-aways during and after divorce are often highly urgent. If your child's other parent wishes to move to another city or state, it's imperative that you take immediate action to halt the move, should you wish. And if you believe it is your or your child's best interest to move to another location, your move may be prevented if your spouse or former spouse takes effective legal action.
We can help. As experienced Houston child relocation lawyers, we have helped hundreds of clients with relocation legal needs. For instance:
- Are you concerned that your children will be taken from you? We can determine the other parent's rights, then, if necessary or advisable, file for an enforcement and restraining order to prevent him or her from moving with your child. We can also work to have the other parent turn over his or her passport following a hearing.
- Do you wish to move away with your child, and there is an order preventing your move? We can file a request for a modification, and then conduct an investigation. If a better school or job will benefit your child, or if your child's other parent rarely visits your child, the court may allow the move.
We are skilled in arguing for the modification of geographical restrictions in move-away disputes, and we can assist you whether or not you are or ever were married to your child's other parent. For more information, please contact us by calling 713-574-8506.
