Access and Visitation and Coronavirus (COVID-19)
An emergency order was issued on March 17th, 2020 by the Texas Supreme Court related to family law cases. The emergency order clarifies visitation and access as related to Spring vacation. It states that the right to possession during Spring vacation should follow the original published school schedule and should not be affected by extended school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we can't provide you any legal advice, we can provide you with this information.
