Celia A. Brown, Attorney, Explains Residence Restrictions
Celia A. Brown, a lawyer practicing family law in Texas, is offering an overview of the state's child custody laws' provision on residence restrictions.
"What are residence restrictions?" Celia A. Brown said. "Residence restrictions have often been put into place to prevent the parent with primary custody from moving so far away with the child that the other parent would not be able to have regular visitation."
The restriction varies in geographical scope - a custodial parent can be prevented from moving out of the country, the state, the city or, in some cases, the county. Violating this restriction and moving without the court's permission could lose that parent the right to custody, or even result in jail time. This provision allows for the non-custodial parent to remain active in the child's life without inconvenience or hardship, thus giving both the mother and the father the chance to have a continuous relationship with the child even after the divorce.
The court also has provisions for allowing the lifting of the residence restriction, but only if the custodial parent is able to firmly justify the grounds for his or her request, such as if the non-custodial parent has been and still remains inactive in the child's life.
For such important issues as residence restrictions, it is always best to seek legal advice. Brown is an attorney who listens carefully to each client, evaluates the case, and gives her best legal opinion on how to arrive at a resolution that would benefit her client's best interest.
