Moving & Modifications in Texas
Circumstances such as a career change or other life change can present a need for a parent to relocate. If custody is established, a parent must formally apply for relocation before taking his or her child with him or her. The courts will look at a number of different factors.
The most important factor is whether or not the move is in the best interests of the child. Other factors the courts will look at include:
- Age of child
- Relationships that the child has already made and how the move will affect him or her
- Reason for the move
- Proximity to other family members and friends
- Educational opportunities
- Opportunity for extracurricular advancements because of the move
