San Antonio, TX asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Texas

Q: How does the pickup and drop off work with a child who lives 110 miles from the non-custodial parent?

My daughter and I live in San Antonio and her dad is in Victoria. He works some weekends and his family is not wanting to work with me on the halfway point for pickup and drop off and I've told them that I'm being nice offering because I've always read that pick up and drop off is the responsibility of the non-custodial parent. Is there any modification to the guidelines with the distance? Or is it it between the parents?

A: Read your order. If your order was done correctly, it should have instructions on pick up and drop off for visitation when the parent lives more than 100 miles away. If that language is not in there then you must follow the instructions that are in your order.

If that language is not in your order then you need to go to court to request a modification of the order to add the correct language.
