first step that we have to look at as
00:06
when the divorce decree was granted with
00:09
some very specific exceptions you have
00:13
to wait one year from the date the
00:14
decree or the prior order was rendered
00:16
until you can modify it then when it
00:19
comes time to modify that for
00:22
conservatorship or access to the
00:24
children number one we have to consider
00:26
what is in the children’s best interest
00:28
and we have to focus the entire case
00:30
around the or look at it through the
00:32
lens of the children we look if there’s
00:34
been any substantial changes or
00:37
significant changes that have happened
00:38
in the lives of the children or either
00:40
parent that would warrant a change in
00:43

00:46
start from the date of divorce calculate
00:49
at least one year from that one year
00:51
forward then we look at through the eyes
00:53
of the child what what has would have
00:57
been in that child’s best interest and
00:58
if a change is warranted then the then I
01:01
am successful when I can show how the
01:03
child will benefit as a result of
01:06
whatever modification were seeking
