Child Custody Modifications Attorney in Houston

Promoting the Best Interests of Children Throughout Houston

Modifying a child custody order can be tricking unless supported by evidence that a significant change in circumstances has affected the child’s best interest. When a court makes a ruling on child custody, it does so after considering factors that impact the child’s best interest. However, if a party can present the court with proof that suggests that those factors no longer apply, or a different set of factors now applies, they can modify the court’s custody order.

At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, you can count on us to provide effective legal solutions toward preserving you and your child’s best interests. Our legal team has the skill to craft an overall narrative for the court so it can understand that the existing custody orders no longer serve your child's best interests.

Texas Law on Child Custody Modifications

To modify an existing child custody order, a party must demonstrate that a material change of circumstances has occurred since the court issued the custody order. This change in circumstances must be so significant as to render the court’s initial analysis of the factors impacting a child’s best interests outdated.

Circumstances that might justify modifying an existing custody order include:

  • A parent being denied court-ordered visitation
  • A change in the custodial parent’s financial condition
  • Plans to relocate with the child
  • Other circumstances that are contrary to a child’s best interest
