You will need to talk to your lawyer about this. Cases like these are very sensitive to the facts, the differences in state law (and I don't practice in Texas), and a detailed look at your situation and the history is needed for advice you can rely on. One place to look for an attorney, if you need one, is our website, http://attorneypages.com
These cases can be difficult. It's true that your ex-wife, as the parent of primary residence, has the last word, but that doesn't mean she can ignore your rights. And judges often tend to enforce settlements, even if one side tries to get out of it.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
