People’s lives change. If your Texas custody, access (visitation) schedule or child support judgment no longer works, you have the right to petition the court to modify your agreement.
I am Plano divorce modification attorney Rachel Li. Over the past several years, my staff and I have helped numerous people in the Dallas area make changes to their custody and child support agreements. We know how to move your petition through the legal system efficiently, and we know what judges expect in the way of justification.
Avoid costly litigation
In many cases, modifications can be arranged between parties through mediation or common-sense negotiations. After reaching an agreement, we will present the agreement to the court for final adjudication by a judge.
From offices in Plano, we represent clients in courts in Collin County, Denton County and Dallas County, Texas.

When there is a significant change in the post-judgment circumstances of one or both parents, modification of an existing child custody order may be warranted. Circumstances may require one party to obtain court approval through modification of the existing child custody order.
Requesting A Child Support Modification
Under specific circumstances, the courts are authorized to modify previously ordered child support, either raising or lowering it. We will advise you on your rights in such circumstances and can, if appropriate, advocate on your behalf for the court to modify the current child support order.
Opposing A Child Support Modification
On the other hand, if you feel that the original order should not be changed, but the other parent is requesting a change, we can advise you on your rights and help you present to the court your reasons why the current child support order should remain the same.
If you have been awarded custody of your child and need to relocate to another community, you may be under a residency restriction. You will need to receive permission from the court to relocate the child. We have extensive experience working with clients on both sides of the relocation issue.
