New Braunfels, TX asked in Divorce, Family Law and Child Custody for Texas

Q: Ex decided to not make me be supervised w/my kids anymore. now he’s mad at me and has demanded I now have a supervisor

Divorce decree says I have to be supervised when I have my kids by one of three of my family member's. (this is due to me not showing up for court for our divorce he won by default ) After doing this supervision deal for almost 2 years my ex then decided that there was no reason for me to have to be supervised with the children anymore. After that I had them all the time. more than my designated time and was unsupervised every time since then. (He did this on his own allowed this on his own and gave me permission on his own not through the court) Recently I have aggravated him in someway and he has decided that he’s going to demand that I have supervisors again or I cannot have my kids. He’s also said that one of the supervisors that he originally listed on the divorce decree could no longer supervise for me.Again this has not been approved by the court or even gone back to the court he is just making the rules as he goes along. What can I do? I would like supervision lifted.need help!

A: Hire an attorney to file a modification of your current order. Gather all your documentation and witnesses that can attest to the fact that you have been with the kids on numerous occasions and give it to your attorney. Until you get a new order from the court you are to follow the current order.
