In January 2014, an agreed modified parent child relationship order was finalized. But the Father requested that we due this modification due to he no longer wanted to deal with childsupport nor the attorney general. Custody was then 50/50 and no childsupport. But our verbal agreement was that we were going to stick to the previous order of 1st 3rd and 5th weekend and would help financially. So we had not done 50/50. My child resides with me and has her visitation with Dad. But since we had an incident he wants to now finally go by court order but i dont want to. I want to petition to modify the order and have it back to the orginal order and add back childsupport.But my daughter doesnt want to go anymore.Can i proceed with requesting this thru court
It sounds like you need to consult with a local family attorney to weigh your options. It is pretty soon after a January 2014 modification to be going back to the court. It is generally wise to get your order in writing and not have side deals. Your side deal is not enforceable and you may have a hard time demonstrating that there has been a material and substantial change in circumstances since January 2014. I recommend visiting with an attorney about what changes there are in your situation that would merit bringing another modification suit so soon.
You can seek the change in the possession order. The legislature does not allow judges to grant "back child support" in situations like yours.
In the future, don't agree to any more modifications just for his convenience. You see where that leads. Lots of good moms get caught up in this.
I am very familiar with the judges in Dallas and Collin counties and can assure you they will take your children's best interests very seriously.
file a modification to modify possession and to start child support. Use a lawyer. you won't get back child support because there is presently an agreement there would be no obligation.
I am not intending this to be legal advice, because I don't know the particulars of your situation. Call me if you would like to discuss this or other isues.
You will need to file a modification. Absent an emergency, you can't do this until one year after the date the prior order was entered.
Any answer I provide is a general observation for discussion purposes and not intended to be legal advice. My comments do not create an attorney-client relationship and you are not authorized to rely on them in making a decision regarding the subject matter of your question or in determining the course of action, if any, you desire to undertake.
