For several reasons-all of which are based on the best interest of the child-family courts in Texas may approve of changes from previous court orders. This process is considered a modification of orders. Varying case by case, the following court orders can be modified:
- Existing custody orders
- Visitation orders
- Child support orders
- Medical and support orders
Circumstances like getting a new job or loss of current employment, relocation, changes in living conditions, criminal charges on part of a parent, or changes in the child’s health can lead to modification of orders. After creating a modification of orders, the next step is making sure the modification is enforced.
Modification of orders can include:
- The child’s desire to reside with other parents
- Child abuse or neglect
- Changes in income and job status
- The best interest and needs of the child
- Visitation rights
Keep in mind, you have the right to seek or defend yourself against the modification of orders. Subsequently, The Fetty Firm is here to make sure your modification orders take effect in the best way possible.
Furthermore, a court order can become stale at times. Because circumstances can change, an existing order can become obsolete.
