Child custody attorneys in Collin County TX can help you formulate the best possible plan to contest the move of the other parent or child custody attorneys in Collin County TX can help you present your case to the court with your request to relocate, if that is your preference. The parent wanting to move has to be doing so in good faith and should present evidence to the court that the move would be in the best interest of the child. The parent should show the move is for a better job or due to the development of a permanent relationship that might require a move. However, if a parent is simply moving out of spite or not in the best interest of the child, the court will very likely not approve the move.
Nevertheless, even if a move is planned in good faith, that doesn’t necessarily mean the court will allow the move to happen. The court will always act in what it feels is the best interests of the child. The court will typically need to be convinced that moving for a better job will not only benefit the parent, but the child as well. For example, the parent requesting the move should consider if the new location will offer accessible healthcare and education? Will the child have the opportunity to join clubs or youth sports organizations?
These kinds of cases, as you can see, require a great deal of careful thought. If you want to block the move or request a move, and your motives are reasonable, child custody attorneys in Collin County TX may be able to help.
