Burleson Relocation Lawyer

Compassionate Advocates Serving Johnson County

Every parent deserves the opportunity to live where they want with their child. Unfortunately, your ability to move and take your children with you can become quite limited after a divorce. The resulting relocation disputes can create complicated legal issues that usually require mediation and litigation. 

Rather than dealing with these challenges alone, turn to a Burleson relocation attorney from Coontz Cochran today. With our support, we can help you secure the stability you and your children deserve.

Odds of Winning a Relocation Case

Every relocation case is different, as the judge will review your case with the child's best interests in mind. 

When you and your ex-spouse have been granted joint custody, proposing moving out of state and modifying the existing child custody arrangement could bring on a legal dispute. That doesn't mean it isn't possible, however.

Keep in mind that if one parent has sole custody over the child but the other has won visitation rights, packing up and moving is no longer a decision that can be made without legal intervention. 

When Deciding on Relocation, Courts Will Consider:

  • Visitation schedule
  • Travel costs and distance
  • State lines
  • Written or express consent
  • Child's schooling and physician

Our priority is to ensure that your rights as a parent are not violated due to either your inhibited relocation or your spouse's unreasonable decision to move away. 

Reasons a Judge Will Deny Relocation

The most common reasons why a judge would refuse to approve a move-away custody case include:

  • The move does not serve the child's best interests
  • The parent is seeking to get back at the other parent by moving away
  • The child's relationship with the parent back home would be harmed in some way
  • The child's relationship with other family members, such as grandparents, would be harmed
