A: Parents generally have superior rights to grandparents. A court order is necessary to obtain custody rights over the child. A party seeking conservatorship is required to serve both parents with a petition and ask the Court to award conservatorship. An affidavit may be obtained from a parent allowing the caretaker to make certain decisions for the child, but that would not prevent the other parent from coming and taking the child if he chose to do so unless there is a Court order.

A: If your husband is still residing in Dallas you may be able to use his residence but generally there is a requirement that one or both parties need to reside in the county in which they file.

A: I am always concerned when an agreement is not clear in its wording. You might ask that the wording be changed to allow you to feel more comfortable before signing. I would suggest that you allow an attorney to review the letter for you as they may be able to determine more from actually seeing the letter. You may be able to find one to look at it for a reasonable amount or even for free if that is all they are doing for you.
