Nelson Law Roundup: 5 useful blog posts about modification suits – Life is fluid, but that doesn’t mean the court order that resolved your divorce is, too. In reality, court orders are meant to be permanent. However, when life circumstances for your child, ex-spouse, or even you change after the divorce is final, you need an experienced lawyer who can help determine whether it is legally possible to have your court order modified.
Modification suits are a big piece of what we do here at Nelson Law Group, PC in Flower Mound, TX, and we are proud to say our library of blog posts on this topic and more is as comprehensive as it gets.
Below is a roundup of 5 useful blog posts about modification suits:
This blog broadly discusses two types of modifications: a suit to modify conservatorship, possession, or access and a suit to modify child support. We will also lay out the acceptable grounds (reasons) for each modification suit.
This blog dives deeper into modification suits and how a court’s jurisdiction factors into any decisions that are made. Per the Texas Family Code, if a Texas court resolves your divorce and renders a final child custody order, that court has continuing, exclusive jurisdiction (CEJ) to modify that order in the future.
Material and substantial change refers to any changes to the family dynamic that may warrant a court to modify an existing order. However, whether a change is considered “material and substantial” is a fact-intensive inquiry decided on a case-by-case basis. Read this blog to learn more.
One type of modification suit involves your child’s relocation. In this suit, the custodial parent has to prove that the relocation is in the best interest of his/her children. For this, you need to have an expert and intelligent lawyer by your side to guide you through this process of getting your modification acknowledged and allowed.
Per the Texas Family Code, the court system can award additional periods of possession when the conservator without the exclusive right to determine the child’s primary residence returns from military duty. This is done to compensate for periods of possession missed during deployment. Read this blog to learn more.
