Child Custody Modification in Texas
Even if the court has already declared a custody order, it is possible to have the court order modified. This is also true of visitation rights. In fact, the family court has the authority to modify child custody orders and visitation rights at any time. In Texas, a party can only modify the terms of an existing order after showing that there has been a material and substantial change in circumstances since the rendition of the last court order warranting modification.
The laws of Texas recognize that as children grow and mature they change, and as do their needs. Likewise, the circumstances of parents are continually changing. Parents change jobs, remarry, and move to new homes and new cities. In some cases a parent may begin to abuse alcohol or drugs, become violent, or place a child in a dangerous situation. Thus, although an order may have been appropriate when it was originally entered, the terms of the order may quickly become inappropriate or unworkable for a family. In those instances, a party should work with a child custody attorney and seek to modify the provisions contained within the existing order.
