Spending time with your children is one of the most important things you
can do every day. Children look forward to their visitation with their
non-custodial parent, and parents rely on having that time with their
children. Parents should be very thoughtful when seeking to
modify a visitation arrangement, so as not to do more damage to the child involved. Parents
should never seek to change a
visitation schedule as a way to punish the other parent or the child.
modification is necessary, however, and in those cases, our
Texas Family Lawyers are available to assist you in creating a visitation schedule that works
best for your family.

the details of your case.
Grounds for Modification
Courts will modify a visitation arrangement if the modification is in the
best interest of the child AND circumstances have materially and substantially changed.
Examples of material and substantial change might include:
- A change in a non-custodial parent’s employment schedule, which makes
the previous schedule unworkable
- A non-custodial parent’s drug or alcohol abuse, which presents a
danger to the child and warrants supervised visitation
- Conviction or deferred adjudication for child abuse or family violence
You should discuss all of the circumstances in your case, including any
changes in location or lifestyle, to your attorney, who can help you determine
whether those changes are material and significant.
Military Families often have special concerns regarding what will happen should one of
the parents be deployed. Texas law provides for these situations.
If a custodial parent is going to be deployed, he or she can petition the
court for a
temporary order granting custody to another person. This person can be the other parent,
a person chosen by the custodial parent, or a person chosen by the court.
This order will end when the custodial parent returns home. If the non-custodial
parent is granted custody under this
temporary order, then the custodial parent can choose another person (such as a spouse)
to have visitation with the child while the custodial parent is deployed.
If a non-custodial parent is going to be deployed, then the non-custodial
parent may choose another person to have visitation with the child while
they are gone. This person must be approved by the court. When the non-custodial
parent returns home, he or she will resume visitation rights.
