In Re Latitia Adelle Johnson Barnard

IN RE LATITIA ADELLE JOHNSON BARNARD


Per curiam.

Original Proceeding

MEMORANDUM OPINION

In a mandamus petition, Latitia Adelle Johnson Barnard seeks to compel the trial court to vacate temporary orders in a pending suit for modification of the parent-child relationship.*fn1 See In re Derzapf, 219 S.W.3d 327, 334-35 (Tex. 2007);

In re Lemons, 47 S.W.3d 202, 203-04 (Tex. App.--Beaumont 2001, orig. proceeding). Relator contends the trial court abused its discretion by changing the designation of the person who has the exclusive right to designate the primary residence of the children. See Tex. Fam. Code Ann. § 156.006 (West Supp. 2012).

Relator also seeks to compel the trial court to decline to exercise jurisdiction and transfer the case to a Louisiana court that has denied relator's request for a protective order and deferred to the Texas court. See Tex. Fam. Code Ann. § 152.207 (West 2008).

After reviewing the mandamus record and considering the arguments presented in the petition and the response, we conclude relator has not shown that she is entitled to the relief she has sought. Accordingly, the petition for writ of mandamus is denied. See Tex. R. App. P. 52.8(a).

PETITION DENIED.
