Attorney Fagan’s eBook Shares Tips on Modifying Your Visitation Agreement
Circumstances in life change, so your visitation agreement will need to reflect these changes. It’s normal for parents and their children to experience situations that call for a modification to their visitation order, but parents should not handle the process alone.
With Attorney Bryan Fagan’s new eBook, you can get clarity on the legal process and the steps you should take to achieve the outcome you want. Modifying a visitation order can be complicated because you must take into account the best interests of your child while considering the schedules and expectations of you and your ex.
To help make the process easier, the eBook covers a range of topics pertaining to visitation modifications, including:
- Who can file a modification case
- Where to file
- How long the modification process takes
- What qualifies as a material and substantial change in circumstances
- Potential impacts of getting a modification
- What to expect before, during, and after the process
These are some of the many topics found in this legal resource. You can download Attorney Fagan’s new eBook directly from our website for more information!
For background, Texas requires petitioners to prove that the visitation change is in the child’s best interest and at least one of the following is true:
- The circumstances of the child, a conservator, or another affected party have materially and substantially changed.
- Examples of a material and substantial change in circumstances are convictions of family violence or child abuse, among others.
- The child is at least 12 and tells the judge who they want to live with.
- The person with primary custody allowed someone else to have primary care and possession of the child for at least 6 months. (Unless the person with primary custody is on active duty military deployment).
