Houston, TX asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Texas

Q: Can I get a temporary order quickly until our current order is changed?

My 10 year old daughter is wanting to do cheer leading again for a 2nd year which she tried out for and made the team. Unfortunately, the team she made has practices every Sunday which interfere with her fathers scheduled time. I spoke to my daughter and she informed me she was ok with shorter time with her dad and really wants to do cheer. After speaking to him, he adamantly refuses to work with me even after offering extra days outside of his scheduled time to see her. I am trying to find out if this is something that I can get adjusted through a judge or if I have to tell my daughter she just cant do any sports as it will interfere with her fathers time which he is unwilling to adjust and if she misses to many days she will be kicked off her team.

A: You should consult with an attorney to get a modification and set for temporary orders to address this one issue. Obviously father is going to want his time made up elsewhere, so I'd start brainstorming alternate periods of possession or make up times over holidays to provide as a reasonable solution to present to a Judge.
