Sec. 153.707.  Expedited Hearing. (a) On a motion by the conservator who has been ordered to military deployment, military mobilization, or temporary active duty, the court shall, for good cause shown, hold an expedited hearing if the court finds that the conservator’s military duties have a material effect on the conservator’s ability to appear in person at a regularly scheduled hearing.

(b)  A hearing under this section shall, if possible, take precedence over other suits affecting the parent-child relationship not involving a conservator who has been ordered to military deployment, military mobilization, or temporary military duty.

(c)  On a motion by any party, the court shall, after reasonable advance notice and for good cause shown, allow a party to present testimony and evidence by electronic means, including by teleconference or through the Internet.

An Expedited Hearing should only be filed by an experienced San Antonio Divorce Lawyer.
