Modification is necessary when prior orders no longer work for families.
Families and children change, and what may have once worked for a family, no longer does. In cases where a prior order no longer works for a family, the State of Texas provides a process for returning to court to modify prior court orders.
Without an agreement of the parties, modification is rarely an easy process. Except in certain specific circumstances, a parent wishing to modify a prior court order must show that there has been a material and substantial change in circumstances, such that the prior order is not longer in their child’s best interest.
