Is A Post-Divorce Modification Appropriate In Your Case?
Life is about change and a family after a divorce is no exception. It is not uncommon for the circumstances of a case to change. It may be necessary to modify the divorce agreement.
Children grow up, illness may strike, people lose jobs. What was agreeable when the divorce decree was finalized may no longer work when circumstances change over time. Modifications are changes that can be made to divorce decrees. These modifications address the evolving needs of the children and former spouses involved.

Custodial Parent Relocation
In general, the state of Texas prefers that children should be reared in the same geographic area as both parents. In cases where an agreement cannot be reached and the parent with primary custody still wishes to relocate to a new area, the burden is placed on the custodial parent to demonstrate the benefits that such a move would have for themselves and their children.
In every matter, Ms. McMillan looks first at ways to resolve these situations outside of the courtroom. This can be accomplished in most cases either by using a collaborative law approach or through mediation.
