In Texas, divorce can be granted both by declaring one spouse to be at fault for the breakup of the marriage (for reasons such as adultery, cruel treatment, abandonment), or the divorce can be granted on a "no fault" provision, referred to as "insupportability." Insupportability means that there exists such personality conflicts and discord which have made the marital relationship so strained that the marriage cannot be saved. A "no fault" divorce presumes that there is no chance of reconciliation for the parties. While a divorce will be granted using either a "no fault" (insupportability) or based on fault, fault based grounds may be taken into consideration by the court to determine a fair division of the couple's marital property.

POSSESSION and ACCESS (Visitation)
MODIFICATIONS OF EXISTING ORDERS
After the court has handed down an order regarding child custody and visitation schedules, that court maintains the power to enforce the order if and when a parent does not comply with its provisions.
In Texas, possession schedules lay out the time that each parent will have with their child, generally specifying both the time and place where that possession should begin. When a parent is denied access to his or her child at a time specified by the court order,that parent can bring a motion for enforcement against the parent who violated the agreement by denying the access. When a parent violates an order involving CUSTODY or VISITATION, and a motion for enforcement is pursued, the parent who is found to have violated the order is most commonly found in contempt of court. Being held in contempt of court can carry several consequences, including the possibility of fines.
If you have been denied access to your child during a visit granted to you by court order, you can protect your rights by contacting the Law Office of Alicia V. Garcia.
