Biography

Attorney Rafee’a S. Majeed is the Owner and Managing Attorney of The Law Office of R.S. Majeed. I am a Texas licensed Family Law attorney representing clients in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I have been representing clients in this area for over 5 years, primarily handling divorces (contested and uncontested), child custody cases, child support cases, and modifications and enforcements of all family law cases.

One of my most key characteristics enabling me to be a successful attorney is adaptability. Because the laws are constantly changing, each and every case brings a unique set of challenges and issues and requires the ability to quickly adapt to keep up with the changes.

I have had success in obtaining desired results for my clients, but I also believe in having tough conversations with clients to ensure that their expectations are aligned with what the law will allow. I have a continuous dialogue with clients to discuss any changes in their situation as their case progresses and make necessary adjustments to their case as needed, if necessary.

I am proud to be a Texas lawyer. I work hard to provide and improve the level of service and representation given my clients.

Legal Answers
43 Questions Answered
Q. If custodial parents want to move closer to the non-custodial parent, do we need to get a geo restriction modification?
A: If there is currently a geographic restriction in your court order, you can remove the geographic restriction either by agreement of the parties or by Court order. If by agreement of the parties, you could draft a document that states something like "both parties agree that [custodial parent] is going to move to _________________ County". This document should be signed by BOTH parents and filed with the Clerk of the county in which the current court order is established. If you want to get a court order, you can file a Petition to Modify Parent-Child Relationship and ask that the geographic restriction be changed. You can have a court order drafted that removes the geographic restriction; or in the alternative, add the new county to the geographic areas that is already in the court order. Both parties can sign the court order and submit to the Judge of the court that the current order is established for the Judge's signature. I hope this information helps. Good luck to you.
Q. My possession order states that if the custodial parent moves to a different county.
A: It is unfortunate that the custodial parent keeps moving with the child(ren). I can only imagine, if they are school aged, how it's affecting their schooling. If the court order requires you to pick up and drop off at the custodial parents residence, then would have to do that until the court order is changed. This is a good situation to file a request with the Court to modify your court order. There has been a material and substantial change in the circumstances that would warrant a change. You should contact a family law attorney in your county to assist you with modifying your court order. Good luck to you.
Q. Can I leave the state if I am in financial difficulties?
A: If Mother hasn't been active in your children's lives for over two years, you should have good grounds to request that the geographic restriction be removed from your court order. The part of your court order that requires you to remain in "Collin County or contiguous counties" is called a "geographic restriction". This geographic restriction can be removed if: 1) the parties agree and file the agreement with the court, or 2) the parties lived in the same county when the court order was entered, and the non-primary parent has since moved out of the county (this item ONLY applies if this language is in your court order); or 3) you file a Petition to Modify the Parent-Child Relationship with the Court asking the Judge to remove the geographic restriction based on a "material and substantial change in the circumstances of a party". In your case, provided that you don't have Item #2 already in your court order, you should be successful with Item #3. If you can show the Judge that Mother has not been a part of the children's lives for over 2 years and that requiring you to remain in Collin County and contiguous counties is causing you financial difficulties (i.e. you can get a better job elsewhere that will put you in a better financial position, you have better support from family/friends elsewhere, etc.), the Court can decide to remove the geographic restriction. The simple fact that Mother has not been active in her children's lives alone may not be sufficient; therefore, you should be prepared to show the Judge why you should be allowed to move the primary residence of your children with the removal of the geographic restriction. Also know that you will be required to serve Mother with a copy of the Petition to Modify the Parent-Child Relationship that you file with the Court, because she has a right to be at any hearing to present her side of the situation. I hope this information helps. Good luck to you.
