Making Life Go Smoothly for San Antonio Families when a Parent Needs to Move

Assisting parents and children throughout Texas in relocation

Whether it’s a new job, a move closer to other family, a personal choice or remarriage, there may come a time when you need to relocate and modify child support and child custody plans. No matter what the reason is, the Law Office of Bill Baskette is here to help. From my San Antonio office, I serve families throughout Texas when they need help navigating the complex web of custody rights and concerns about a child being taken out of state. It’s my goal and my pleasure to give you the personal service, professional experience and strategic advice you need in a custody and relocation dispute. Custody issues are often the most difficult and challenging parts of divorce, and I understand the emotions involved when one parent wants to move with a child. As your lawyer, I make certain that I offer a compassionate ear and will always look to the best interests of your child or children when striving for a resolution.

Relocation and Custody Rights in Texas

When a custodial parent seeks to move out of state with a child, that parent must have permission of any parent with legal rights or the court. Courts usually grant the right to move away upon a showing that it is in the child’s best interests and that the move will benefit the household. Don’t take your child out of state without first consulting an attorney who can inform you of your rights and responsibilities. I am experienced with relocation cases involving:
  • Post-divorce modifications
  • Lifting residential restrictions
  • Right to relocate
  • Custodial parental move for job or marriage
When the circumstances threaten to tear your family further apart, I help you find a solution that lets you work together with your former spouse. This may involve arranging a new parenting plan where the child visits one parent over the holidays, or a reduced child support amount to account for travel expenses. I’m known for suggesting creative solutions that often help your family and your children adjust to new situations.

Moving families forward through relocation disputes

As a former judge and prosecutor, and as a lawyer for more than 30 years, I’ve seen plenty of good and bad relocation and custody disputes.
