Looking Out For Your Interests In Parental Relocation Cases
Texas family law courts allow for child and parent to relocate in certain circumstances. However, such cases are generally contentious. For a parent with primary custody rights, there may be circumstances when the court is reluctant to allow for relocation. And for a parent wishing to prevent relocation from taking place, they must still demonstrate to the courts that such a relocation would not be in the best interests of the child.
The attorneys at Amick, Stevens & Gadness, in Plano, understand the notice requirements for relocation, and can represent your interests in litigation and mediation. We can build a case demonstrating to the court what truly is best for the child and make certain to address your interests to the court in child relocation matters.
What The Relocation Process Involves
As relocation impacts your ability to engage in a relationship with your child, we understand your needs and concerns in such matters. Our lawyers will take the necessary steps to make certain the court understands your concerns. The process for relocation of a child can be complex. This process involves:
- Negotiating and possibly mediating existing relocation disputes
- Analyzing and possibly modifying existing agreements to obtain the consent of both parties
- Taking into account the child’s needs, including the child’s age, the area of the proposed relocation, the relationship of the child with each parent and reasons for the relocation
- Modifying or creating a visitation schedule that accounts for the concerns of all parties
- Considering the child’s wishes
It is necessary to take care of such matters promptly as the legal process could otherwise prove to be slow. It is important to meet all specific notice requirements. And because of the importance of such matters, it is necessary to file all pleadings and motions in a timely manner.
We will provide you advice, guidance and representation regarding every aspect of these cases. During trial or mediation, we will strongly argue your case and fight for your rights every step of the way.
