As a Dallas family lawyer, I often hear from parents who are facing difficult family law issues after a move. One common situation is when both parents were living in one state, and then one parent moved to Texas with the children. In these cases, it may be necessary to modify the existing custody and visitation order.
Modifying Custody and Visitation Orders in Texas
In order to modify a custody and visitation order in Texas, there must be a material and substantial change in circumstances. A move to another state with the children can certainly qualify as such a change. The parent who has moved will need to demonstrate how the move has affected the children and why a modification is necessary.
