My Child Custody Modification Is For The Purpose Of Relocation
Child custody modifications are typically made for the purpose of relocation, and they are usually contested by the other parent. When a contestation is made against the request, it could be because the noncustodial parent wants the child to be easily accessible or they may fear having to pay child support.
In Texas, it is harder for the custodial parent to move out of state because the court looks at specific details to determine if it is in the child’s best interest. Your request will be denied if you do not present strong factors as to why the move is necessary. Sometimes a career change is not enough, especially if equal work is available in your current location.
