For various reasons—all of which tie to the best interests of the child—family courts in Texas may approve of changes from previous court orders. This is called modifications of orders. Depending on your case, the following court orders may be modified:
- Existing custody orders
- Existing visitation orders
- Existing child support orders
- Medical and support orders
Circumstances such as a new job or loss of a current job, relocation, changes in living conditions, criminal charges on the part of a parent, or changes in the child’s health can lead to modification of orders. The next challenge is enforcement.
