Modification of a Conservatorship

Hi guys, Ali Shah here again, with the Law Office of the Bryan Fagan. Today, I want to talk to you guys about some grounds for a modification of a conservatorship, specifically possession and access. The standard is for a modification to be in the best interest of the child. And there are some things that the court considers. Number one is that the circumstances of a child or other parties affected by the order have materially and substantially changed. Number two, is that the child is at least 12 years old and has expressed in the chambers to the court to name the person who the child prefers to have the exclusive right to determine the primary residence of the child. And number three is the conservator, who has the right to establish the child's primary residence, has voluntarily relinquished the primary care and possession of the child for at least six months.
