Waco, TX asked in Divorce, Family Law and Child Custody for Texas

Q: Ex husband moved out of state, I was limited to 2 counties in Texas. Can I move out of the county now?

I was limited to 3 counties in Texas and the counties connecting them. As well as one county in Georgia where he is from. He was in Lubbock. (One area I was able to go). He has moved to Florida without notifying the system or me. I want to move to a county separate from those I was allowed. (But still in Texas) Can I do that now that he has completely left the 2 states? He also has not used his visitation at all since agreed upon in October.

A: The order should detail whether you have to remain if he leaves. Read it carefully. If you’re still not sure what to do then consult a family law attorney. Good luck 888-343-4529.

A: Look at your order for details.

In general, if one parent moves outside the designated area the other parent can too.
