Standard Possession Order Regarding Child Custody Being Reconsidered by Bexar County Courts
The Bexar Civil Judges initially issued a statement that they were observing the “Standard Possession Order” language regarding the return of children on Sunday at the end of Spring Break. As of Monday, March 16, 2020, that is no longer the case. Judge Monique Diaz, out of the 150th issued a statement that she will be considering issues pertaining to the Spring Break provisions on a case-by-case basis.
|The Bexar County judges are now split on how they will be enforcing the Spring Break provisions of the Standard Possession Order.|
The Order States-
THE 150TH CIVIL DISTRICT COURT IS CONSIDERING ISSUES PERTAINING TO THE SPRING BREAK PROVISIONS OF THE STANDARD POSSESSION ORDER ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS. THE 150TH DISTRICT COURT IS NOT “ENFORCING THE STANDARD POSSESSION ORDER FOR SPRING BREAK PURSUANT TO THE ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED SCHOOL CALENDARS” IN ALL CASES. IN ORDER FOR THE 150TH DISTRICT COURT TO CONSIDER ANY ISSUES PERTAINING TO THE SPRING BREAK PROVISIONS OF THE STANDARD POSSESSION ORDER, THE COURT REQUIRES PARTIES TO FOLLOW THE RULES OF CIVIL PROCEDURE AND TO FILE PROPER PLEADINGS SEEKING RELIEF BEFORE THE COURT MAY RULE ON THE ISSUE.

- Who has time of possession now?
