Relocation/Parent Move-Away Attorneys

  • Do you wish to relocate with your child, either out of the area or out of the state?
  • Is the child’s other parent looking to move with your child, and you wish to stop this from happening?

After divorce or separation, a parent cannot simply move out of the area or out of the state with his or her child. He or she must first seek a child custody modification through Texas family courts.

At the law office of Laurence A. DePlaza, P.C., we represent parents in relocation/parental move-away cases. Whether you are looking to move with your child, or you want to keep your child living close to you and stop the move-away, we can help you understand your options. Contact Plano relocation/parent move-away attorneys today to learn how we can help.

Looking to Move With Your Child?

If you are a parent who is looking to relocate with your child, you must first seek a child custody modification. You cannot simply move with your child without the other parent’s consent and that of the court. There must be a compelling reason to relocate with your child. The court will consider the best interests of the child when determining whether to grant a modification.

Looking to Keep Your Child Close to You?

The other parent cannot simply move out of state without taking proper legal steps. It is first necessary to modify the existing child custody order.

The court will consider the best interests of the child involved when determining whether to approve the modification. The courts recognize that close contact with both parents is often in the best interests of a child.
