i filed the motion already, i had the custodial parent properly served by a constable. They responded necause i checked on the harris county website online. but they never disclosed a copy to me of the answer filed. first, how do i get a copy of the answer filed (all it shows is that it is 1 page) and what should the next step be to go forward with the modification on an existing order?? the current order has been in place for @ 3 years now.
Are you trying to modify child support amount? If so you should go through the AG. If you are trying to modify custody you probably need help from an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, consult the Houston Bar Association, they may be able to direct you to someone who can help. Modifications are not something you should try to do on your own.
