Access and Visitation Hotline

The Texas Office of the Attorney General and its shared parenting program operates a telephone hotline to provide easy, statewide access to basic legal information, education, and resources for parents and other interested parties who do not have access to an attorney. Attorneys at the hotline can address the following issues:

  1. Access, visitation, and custody;
  2. Conservatorship and parental rights;
  3. Paternity establishment as part of establishing a parenting (possession) order; and
  4. The link between your parenting order and the child and medical support process.

Call the Access and Visitation hotline 1-(866) 292-4636 (toll free), Monday through Friday, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. CST The Hotline does not accept messages.

If you are in the process of getting a child support order, the hotline attorneys can explain what you can expect to happen next.

If you already have a child support order, and you’d like to change it or enforce it, The Office of the Attorney General can help you.
