This would be a change of circumstances. What are the best interests of the child? If the father wants to contest it - I think he has a good case.

Yeah it definitely deals with a modification of a custody arrangement. I believe that the death of one parent would enough to satisfy a material and substantial enough change so that the arrangement will be changed. Also, the courts favor the biological parent, so it is likely that it is in the best interest of the child that they live with the alive parent as opposed to the Grandparent. It should be noted however that in TX grandparents have rights of "access" to their grandchildren should they meet certain criteria.

My advice to you is to hire a lawyer, and have the custody changed.
