Modifying Texas Court Orders Following Divorce

As changes in your life or financial situation occur, you may find that the support and custody orders established following your divorce no longer reflect your current circumstances. In such cases, modification is necessary. If you need to change existing Texas orders, rely upon David L. Willis, P.C., in San Antonio to assist you.

A Suit Affecting The Parent-Child Relationship

In Texas law, a suit affecting the parent-child relationship (SAPCR) designates three specific areas of possible modification:

  • Possession and access: This involves standard possession as well as alterations to visitation schedules.
  • Apportionment of the right to establish residence: While primarily determined between parents, children over the age of 12 may express their wishes regarding designation of the conservator.
  • Apportionment of other rights of the conservators, including modification of the rights to make medical and education decisions, among others.
  • Child support: We help clients modify existing support for changes that reflect financial circumstances. This may occur through an increase or decrease in support over a period of three years or 100 months.

Alternative Possession Schedules

Sometimes, career changes significantly alter a parent's schedule. Perhaps you have gone from working a nine-to-five job to working second shift. For parents whose work schedules are unconventional, our firm provides assistance establishing alternative possession schedules, and our firm will also review existing schedules if applicable to the situation.
