There has to be a custody suit filed and a motion for the judge to confer with the child. Technically, this can be done without a lawyer, but it would be difficult. The judge is required to consider the child's opinion, but it is only factor in the judge's decision.
Have been "allowed" facetime visits only since March due to Covid. Been Sundays 1230 - 230 but kids started to just hang up with no explanation after 15mn to an hour. Told them next visit will be 2pm - 4pm Saturday inperson wherever they want. Replied we couldnt force them to go or stay????
Hire a lawyer to assist you with enforcing your custody rights. You may also want to consider getting a court order for family counseling to figure out why the children are resisting attending visitation.

Hire an attorney who focuses on parole work AND a criminal defense attorney for the trespassing case. Parole work is very different because it follows different rules so having one attorney who does both is not ideal. As they say, the jack of all trades is the master of none.
In order to prevail on a Motion to Modify custody, you have to prove two things: 1) A substantial and material change of circumstances on the part of the mother, the father, the child or some combination of the three, and 2) that the requested modification is in the best interests of a child.

If a lawsuit has been filed and Tarrant County has a Standing Order that applies to all pending family law cases, then the answer to your question can be found in the Standing Order. If no lawsuit has been filed, the answer to your question is likely no.

If there is an Order in place authorizing you to have visitation, she cannot legally use the COVID crisis as a reason to deny you visitation. Also, if there is a geographic restriction on your son's residence, she may be in contempt for moving your son out of that area.
My son is almost 15 and his dad and I get along very well. Is there a way I can cancel out his child support to the attorney general so he no longer has to pay anymore? Or do I have to go through my attorney to do that? we have been divorced now for 8 years. Thank you
You could ask the Office of the Attorney General to create on Order Terminating Child Support and an Order Terminating Income Withholding. If the OAG does not do it for you, however, y'all will probably have to get an attorney to draft them for you.
If the non custodian parent filed for a modification due to being laid off and he got his job back can he cancel the request for a modification if it hasn't been established yet? It didn't help any to ask for a modification because it took forever and I got my job back before it was even modified.
They have stayed at her house before as friends to her 18 year old daughter. But this time she asked them to stay, according to my son. We think she may be providing drugs to them but we have no proof.
