A Richardson Child Custody Attorney Can Facilitate Visitation Rights
Most of the time, a remarriage will not affect your child visitation rights, but in some instances a modification of the arrangement may be requested by your former spouse. If your former spouse does request a modification, contact a Richardson child custody attorney for advice on retaining your visitation rights.
When a divorce is granted in Texas and there are children from the marriage, a child visitation schedule is established and approved by the court. The schedule will remain in effect until a petition for modification is filed with the court. To modify a custody arrangement requires that there be a change in circumstances that the court determines to be against the best interests of the child.
Texas law favors a visitation arrangement where both parents are actively involved in the children’s lives. Generally, a court will not disturb an agreed-upon joint custody arrangement, unless there is a change in circumstances that creates an unsafe environment in which the child is raised.
For example, if your intended spouse had a criminal record, particularly a violent criminal record, you could certainly expect that your former spouse would seek a modification of your visitation rights to avoid contact with your new spouse.
