Know your options for cross-border custody battles

Lake Charles is right on the Louisiana-Texas border. This brings up a challenge for some people who are going through a child custody case. What will happen if your ex moves across the border or if you need to move across the border? Many people might assume that this is a no-brainer, but if you and your ex have a child custody agreement, this might not be so easy.

We know that you might have some concerns about how the interstate child custody case would be handled. We can help you learn about what factors are present in your case. Once we have that information, we can work toward finding a solution for you.

In many child custody cases, having both parents work together to come to a resolution can get things worked out faster. If you and your ex are able to do this, we might be able to get an agreement worked out that is mutually acceptable.

Of course, it isn't always easy to get a mutually agreeable resolution. In these cases, we can head to court to get the court to rule on the matters. This might be a longer process, but some parents prefer this resolution type.

Whether you are in the middle of a cross-border battle or need help determining if you can move across the border, we can help. You might have to notify the court or your ex about the move. We can even help you with these notifications. What really matters in these cases is that you are doing things in accordance with the applicable laws and custody orders.
