Uvalde, TX asked in Family Law for Texas

Q: I have a question concerning family law...

I have two boys ages 4 & soon to be 3 years old. I have been receiving some child support for a few months now. At the time we had our mediation I had no issues with visitations. We've had many differences since. I would like to fight for him to at least have supervised visitations or maybe even sole custody. I can gather plenty of prove to back me up in court. Looking for a lawyer at this point since I have refused in letting my children go visit with him on his weekends.

A: In order to modify within the first year you are going to have to show some serious (health and safety issues) changes to warrant a modification. If you believe that you have these and want to pursue then feel free to contact our office. 888-343-4529.

A: In order to obtain a modification of the type of conservatorship in less than a year under the circumstances you briefly described above, you would need to be able to show that the mental, emotional or physical well being of the children is in danger.

You will need to provide an affidavit that lists some of the reasons you believe this to be true.

If the Judge thinks that the allegations in your affidavit deserve to be looked into then your action can move forward. If the Judge does not think the allegations deserve to be looked into the case will be dismissed.

You should find an attorney to assist you as soon as possible because you do not want to risk being in contempt of a court order for refusal to allow court ordered visitation.
