    Answered . You EX needs to sign an affidavit of relinquishment. You need to do this right. Talk to a family law attorney. I suggest Stephanie Proffitt. 713.224.3400. Good Luck.

    Answered . No, a letter will not suffice, you will need a modifciation or SAPCR to make this change legal. Feel free to call my office to set up a free consultation regarding the specifics of this matter.
