Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to help if I can. Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct any necessary research, and type a response. Thank you.
In order to get a judge to allow you to move your children to Florida, you would have to demonstrate that the move is in the children’s best interest. I will be honest with you, that proving that it is in the children’s best interest to move away from their father in Texas to Florida where their relationship with their father will clearly suffer, will be a difficult task. Essentially, you’re asking the court to rule that the move to Florida is so important for the children’s well-being that it is acceptable to virtually destroy their relationship with their father.
Having said all that, it’s possible that you could indeed win the right to move to Florida if you can show that the relationship that the children have with the father is strained. That there are no job prospects in Texas. That there is no family in Texas. What you need to avoid is the appearance that you are moving to Florida for your own convenience and not actually for your children’s best interest.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
