How Do I Change my Custody Order in Texas
Under Texas Law, a previous decree for divorce, child support order, visitation order or temporary custody order may be modified if there has been a substantial change in the circumstances of the children that affects the best interest of the child.
An attorney may file a petition to the court that outlines what needs to be changed and why. Changes in grades, medical conditions, school attendance and behavior are just some examples of what the court might base a modification on.
It might be that one starts off with the intention to change custody and then realizes it may be best to change other aspects of the court order instead such as visitation, restrictions on the residence, or clarifying a part of the order that the other parent uses in an abusive way.
