    What is "unfit parent" law in texas?

    What is the name of your state? TX

    On what grounds can a father request pri**** custody of his children?

    Thanks for your response. If you read my last post called "pri**** custodial parent in Texas?" it will give you the history...
    eager to hear your thoughts.

    On the grounds

    That he loves his children and wants them to live with him. If he wants pri**** physical custody all he has to do is ask for it in his papers when he files or answers your petition.

    I should add that just because he asks does not mean he will get it.

    Since judges do not like to change existing custody orders~ Most states require a substantial change in circumstance. Look up TX domestic code for "change in circumstance" and see if the situation fits. Typically it would involve abuse/neglect/incarceration/rehab or drug related offenses etc.

    I didn't mean to post info in two threads, but I can tell you THIS one has generated more answers than my first one.
