Geographic Restrictions and Relocation Lawyer in Deer Park

Child Custody Lawyer in Harris County

After a divorce has been settled and child custody has been determined, it can cause a real upheaval of the family if one parent decides they want to move to another country or state, particularly if that parent has primary custody of the child or children involved in the case. While there is no hard and fast rule regarding parental relocation cases, having a Deer Park divorce attorney on your side will benefit you when arguing your side of the case in court.

When it comes to child custody, the courts will do whatever they feel is in the best interest of the child. When deciding on a relocation case, they will consider the following factors:

  • The reason for the move
  • The nature of the child's current relationship with both parents
  • The effect relocation may have on the child or children involved
  • The effect relocation may have on the other parent's ability to maintain a meaningful relationship with the child
  • The opportunities for the child and parent at the new location
  • Whether the child's special needs, if any, can be accommodated at the new location
