In today's economy, it seems like nothing is permanent and everything is in flux. Many parents find themselves needing to relocate for the sake of their careers, to obtain additional educational qualifications or to improve their life situation.
However, if a parent has primary custodial rights over a child, the parent generally cannot simply relocate with the child to a distant location. When the other parent has visitation rights, the move must be approved by a judge. Courts in Texas always decide such matters in ways that are in the "best interest" of the child.
Whether you are a parent who wishes to relocate with your child or a parent who wishes to retain your access rights and parenting time, you need strong, effective legal representation.
M. J. Hill & Associates, PLLC, in San Marcos, Texas, can advise and represent you. Call 512-212-4916 today.

Positive Solutions For Family Law Problems
If the court alone decides to approve a child relocation, it can seem that one parent has won while the other parent has lost. This is not always the case. Depending on circumstances, it may be possible to negotiate a solution that is fair and is in the best interests of the child and parents. Such solutions generally involve providing the noncustodial parent with extended parenting time during the year, around the holidays, in the summer months or some combination of those. Matthew J. Hill has successfully negotiated many child custody and parenting time agreements. If a negotiated solution is possible, we will work diligently to achieve an agreement that protects your rights and is in the best interest of your child.
