Securing Your Family’s Future
League City Modification of Custody and Support Orders
The modification of a divorce decree or other final order that contains provisions relating to children: custody, visitation support, etc., is still controlled by laws and rules under the Texas Family Code. However, when a parent or former spouse seeks to modify (essential change what was originally ordered by the court) the modification case follows a different procedure than the original case, and there are additional burdens that must be satisfied by the person trying to change the original ruling. A League City Custody Modification Lawyer is almost always necessary to protect your rights and be certain the rules of procedure and Texas Family Code statutes are followed to your advantage. For example, in League city, Rob Musemeche is Board Certified in Family Law and has decades of experience in modification of child custody and child support orders. He knows that the underlying order can only be changed if certain considerations and factors are present, and only if the modification would be in the best interest of the child.
For example, an experienced League City Custody Modification Lawyer can look at the facts in your case, and help develop a strategy that takes into account Texas Family Code, Section 156.101, et seq., which restricts the modification of an order dealing with possession and access, and allows modified only if:
- The circumstances of the child, conservator, or other party affected by the order have materially and substantially changed (since the date the order was given or the date the related mediated or collaborative law settlement agreement was signed);
- The child is at least 12 years old and has expressed their preference to the court; or
- The conservator who has the right to designate the primary residence of the child has voluntarily relinquished primary care and possession of the child to another person for at least six months.
