Access and Visitation Directory

The Access and Visitation online directory is a compilation of community services available to families to facilitate shared parenting after separation or divorce. The directory includes supervised visitation centers, mediation, co-parenting education, parenting coordination, legal services for enforcement, and neutral pick-up and drop-off centers throughout Texas.

The Office of the Attorney General does not endorse the service providers listed in the directory of Access and Visitation community resources. The list is provided for informational purposes only. Those interested in the services listed here should determine for themselves whether the providers and their services are suitable for their needs.

The Texas Access and Visitation Hotline

The Texas Access and Visitation Hotline is the only service of its kind in the nation that provides noncustodial and custodial parents with free phone access to attorneys who provide legal information and assistance related to child custody and visitation issues, as well as paternity and child support information. Hotline attorneys do not represent parents. Rather, they provide explanations of legal orders; provide tools and guidance for resolution of child access issues; and answer parents' questions regarding possession and access orders, custody, paternity and child support.

The toll-free number (866) 292-4636 is answered in English and Spanish, Monday through Friday from 1:00pm until 7:00pm. The hotline has a corresponding website, TXAccess, where parents can download sample materials and tools for assistance with child access issues. Additional brief legal coaching or self-help assistance may be available to eligible Hotline callers.
