My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Texas.
My friend has a young son with a man she was never married to, and who is active duty Army and is currently deployed. He is the non-custodial parent, obviously, and pays child support. He's also got an older son with another woman. My friend has no problem with letting the brothers see each other, but feels that's between her and the other mother. The issue is that the father got married recently and wants his new wife to have visitations on the weekends/days that we typically be his. Does the new step-mom have any visitation rights to her two step-sons? Is my friend required to take her son to the new wife's house if she doesn't have a court order specifically stating it?
