Moving to Houston, TX After A Divorce
Texas, and Houston specifically, has increasingly become a popular landing spot for relocation for several reasons over the past few decades. Our area’s population has boomed due to our competitive job market and low cost of living. That booming population has swelled significantly during the past couple of years specifically. If you are considering a move to Houston or its surrounding areas, then pay close attention to this blog post. We at the Law Office of Bryan Fagan are going to walk you through the essential information for any new or aspiring Houstonian.
Getting to Houston
Houston has two airports of size. The first is George Bush Intercontinental Airport. This is Houston’s largest airport located on the northside of Houston. Being the home of many large corporations and many people who call Houston home but hail from other states and countries mean that Houston is a frequently travelled destination. You will find no shortage of intrastate, domestic, and foreign flights coming out of Intercontinental Airport. On-site parking, terminal information and more can be found on the website for IAH.
The other of Houston’s two major airports is Hobby Airport located on Houston’s southeast side of town. Hobby offers mostly domestic flights but has increased its foreign flights to mostly areas such as Mexico, Latin America, and the Caribbean. If you travel frequently on Southwest Airlines and have ever traveled to Houston before then you are probably familiar with Hobby Airport. While this airport is not as large as IAH it still offers everything a traveler could ask for.
Where to Live?
One of the great things about living in Houston is the sheer volume of options when it comes to choosing a place to live. Depending on your circumstances you could be happy in any of several places both within the city limits and in points beyond. Living in Houston means choosing from a wide variety of locations inside Loop 610. Desirable locations such as Bellaire, West University, The Heights, East Downtown, and the Washington neighborhoods all offer great amenities for those who are moving to Houston and wish to live near the urban heartbeat of the city.
Next, neighborhoods like Memorial, Briar Forest and Spring Branch are established neighborhoods outside of the inner loop located along the Sam Houston Tollway on Houston’s westside. These areas allow you to take advantage of being near downtown but far enough away to enjoy a somewhat slower pace to life. Garden Oaks, Candlelight Estates, and Independence Heights are located along the North Loop of Houston and are established, excellent neighborhoods.
Finally, like many American Sunbelt cities, Houston has suburban areas that are highly desirable, as well. From The Woodlands, Spring, and Tomball on the northside of Houston to Seabrook, Friendswood, and Clear Lake on Houston’s southside there are almost too many excellent suburbs to mention in this space. What you need to do is visit the city, find out where you are working and then plan from there. Each of these communities have something great and unique for every family. The key is to determine what suits you best and then go from there.
