My original divorce decree stated I had first right of

My original divorce decree stated I had first right of refusal if parent will be absent for more than 24 hours or out of town on business. In 2010 we had amended the decree pertaining to visitations. However, her attorney in the revised decree omitted the first right of refusal clause. She has since violated this clause numerous times and says because that clause no longer exist and she does not have to abide by this clause. I have been told the original clause is still in effect even though it was omitted and was not part of the amendment. Please advise.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: As far as her violating this clause? No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I just want to know if should notify the police if I have grounds to stand on, because I know she will be violating it again this Friday and has told me to feel free to call the police.
