I'm so sorry for what you are going through!
You are right, however, there is a minimum. It is not clear to me from your facts how much you do have, but take a look at this and see if you and your daughter are getting shafted.
The Texas Legislature established a minimum visitation schedule for Texas - a Standard Possession Order (SPO) for those who live within 100 miles. That doesn't apply to you but there is a minimum for those non-custodial parents and children that reside more than 100 miles apart: the non-custodial parent gets every Spring Break, forty-two (42) days during the summer, and the choice of the standard weekends or any one weekend per month, selected by the visiting parent, so long as proper notice is given to the other parent.
I would urge my lawyer (in writing, mailed cert. r.r.r. if you must) that you want a hearing on it NOW. No more delays - she needs to request a hearing date on this motion, assuming she has FILED a motion to modify visitation. She needs to move on this.
Good luck dad, your girl is a lucky little one to have a dad working so hard to keep them together.
