Texas divorce and child custody FAQ: Can I take my children on vacation during my divorce or custody case?
Posted By O'Neil Wysocki
Many counties in Texas have Standing Orders that contain specific injunctions regarding the removal of children beyond the state of Texas during the pendency of a divorce or child custody case. Many of these Standing Orders specifically prohibit anyone from removing the children beyond the state of Texas unless you have a written agreement of the parties and/or a specific court order that allows you to do so. Therefore, you can take your children on vacation, but you have to stay within the boundaries of the state of Texas, unless the other party agrees in writing and/or you obtain a court order that allows you to do so.
