In the state of Texas, a couple who has obtained a divorce may be able to modify the orders that directly affect them as well as their parent-child relationships. Such orders include child support, child custody, alimony/spousal maintenance, and visitation rights, and Deborah L.Thompson, Attorney at Law can help you fight aggressively for the modification of your court orders.

Orders Affecting Children

As always, the best interests of the child(ren) involved in a divorce situation are of primary concern, and a change to the circumstances of their home life needs to be re-evaluated. Whether the custodial parent is relocating or the child’s financial needs have changed, orders such as child support, custody, and visitation may need to be modified. Some of the most common reasons for a modification request include:

  • Change in the circumstances of the child or parents
  • Child has reached 12 years old and wishes to name the individual with sole right to designate residence
  • Primary possessor has voluntarily given up the care and custody of their child for at least 6 months
  • Physically or emotionally harmful living conditions of the child
  • Change of residence increased expenses
  • Conviction of child abuse/family violence
  • Military duty
  • Change in lifestyle

These and other possible reasons for modification may be used by Houston, Texas family law attorney Deborah L.Thompson, Attorney at Law to seek a significant change in the orders stemming from your divorce that pertain to your child.
