Attorney Alsandor can help you determine which venue will be appropriate as well as the benefits and drawbacks of each arena, using the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) and other applicable legislation.

Child Relocation Considerations

In Texas, the court will consider how to appropriately allocate visitation to the parent who is relocating without the child or if a parent is seeking to relocate with the child. The overall concern is that the visitation is commensurate with preserving the parent's relationship with the child. If a parent is relocating without the child, we can help petition for a modification to a possession order, which is the agreement that speaks to visitation, access and time.

When granting a child relocation request, the court will also consider:

  • What is in the best interest of the child
  • The child's preference
  • The benefit of the relocation for the child, including access to better schooling, medical care, extended family
  • The amount of contact with the relocating parent

Mrs. Alsandor is an excellent attorney; but most of she is a very empathetic person. This is what separated her from the other attorneys I consulted before hiring her. She helped me during one of the most diffcult times of my life. I was divorcing my wife and fighting for primary custody of my 10 year old son. I actually did not think I would be granted custody being that I am a man and the court systems usually favorite women as being the primary custodian. However after I consulted with Mrs. Alsandor she basically assured me she would do everything legally possible to assure that I was granted custody. Mrs. Alsandor was very understanding, kind and very compassionate. I felt as if she had taken my case personally and this was her fight as well. She responded to my many phone calls and emails; and there were a lot(because of my nerves) Her prices were very reasonable for the extraordinary work that she does. I recently recommend her to one of my co-workers and he noticed the very same qualities. Mrs. Alsandor was God sent. I am happy to report I did win primary custody of my son. We are doing well and we are very happy all thanks to Mrs. Alsandor. Nelson D.
My case was handled well, with professionalism and within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Attorney Alsandor to anyone because she is straight forward and stayed within the guidelines of the law. I did not have to worry about winning my case because she had it under control. I especially like that I did not have to do a lot of work like traveling to her office and missing meetings at my office because we communicated via email, where I could sign the documents and scan and send it. Lastly, her prices where affordable and I was able to easily pay online, which again saved me time. Steven
