Challenges when one parent lives out of state

Co-parenting is usually difficult regardless of distance or the parents’ ability to get along. At Law Thompson, P.C., we understand that there are unique challenges when the noncustodial parent lives farther away. You and other Texas residents may be interested in learning about these challenges, especially if you are just getting divorced and you or the other parent is considering a move.

What is full faith and credit?

As difficult as child custody issues in Texas can be to resolve, matters become even more complicated when one parent moves out of state, whether by choice or by necessity. If you are a parent dealing with interstate custody issues, whether you are the parent moving or the parent left behind, you should know that moving your children to another state does not nullify the existing child custody agreement. According to FindLaw, the federal Full Faith and Credit Law requires states to abide by and enforce valid custody orders made elsewhere and prevents them from modifying orders made in another jurisdiction.
