I want to modify my current court order
The very first thing you need to do is order a certified copy of the current court order. Any attorney that you talk to will need to read this document to understand what is currently ordered by the judge in your case. Even if you no longer live in that state or county, you need to have the document reviewed because it controls until it is modified. In Harris County you order a certified copy at the Harris County Civil Courthouse downtown. The cost is $1 per page. They do not accept checks. Most court records are open documents and anyone can order a copy. Usually only certain cases are not available to the public -- for example usually only adoption records are sealed.
