Please consult and retain family law counsel. You can ask for primary joint managing conservatorship without regard to geographical location. The Texas Family Code supports a child having a relationship with both parents who act in the child's best interests. You can move if no court orders exist and no divorce has been filed and you can get passport authority, but jurisdiction will be in the United States under the UCCJEA and Texas Family Code Chapter 152 if your son has resided in Houston, Texas, area all of his 16 months. You need excellent family law counsel in Houston, Harris County area if you want to relocate out of U.S. with your son. Many factors are relevant to your son's best interests, including any history or pattern of any family violence.
