395th District Court Judge Ryan D. Larson

On March 22, 2016, following his primary election victory, Ryan D. Larson was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott as judge of the 395th District Court. Judge Larson was sworn in on April 4, 2016. U.S. Congressman John Carter, a former district court judge, administered the oath of office at the standing-room only event.

Judge Larson is married with two beautiful children that greatly enrich his life. The family worships at a local church, where Judge Larson teaches bible study.

Prior to his appointment, Judge Larson was an administrative law judge for the State of Texas. He also served under then-Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, as an assistant attorney general. Prior to that, Judge Larson was in private practice. As a practicing attorney he had a winning record at all levels of Texas Courts, including multiple victories at the Texas Supreme Court.

Judge Larson is a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation, an honor bestowed on only the top third of 1% of Texas attorneys each year. Election to the Fellows is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a member of the State Bar of Texas. Nomination is based on outstanding contributions to the legal profession as well as a commitment to the community. Outside the courtroom, Judge Larson is a member of the Department of Family and Protective Services’ Prevention Advisory Committee. The high-level advisory committee is charged with making recommendations on statewide child safety strategies that help prevent child abuse and neglect.

Judge Larson received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Los Angeles - where he was an NCAA Division I athlete on the track and cross country teams - and a Juris Doctor from Southwestern Law School.

 
Spring Break Standard Possession Order

In an effort to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), local school districts have or are considering school closures after the spring break. Consequently, the Williamson County Courts have been receiving inquiries requesting guidance for parents whose children are due back after spring break.

The Standard Possession Schedule contained in most divorce and SAPCR orders is based on the school calendar. This means the possession schedule should be read in conjunction with the school calendar: where the child goes to school; or for the school district in which the child resides, if the child is not yet in school. In entering these orders, it was unforeseen that spring break for area schools might be extended because of a pandemic illness, such as COVID-19.

In situations like the present one, for purposes of interpretation of the order, the original school calendar determines the possession schedule. School closures, which may have the net effect of extending the spring break, should not be used by the visiting parent to extend his or her possession period with the child. The child is due back to the other parent at the time spring break ends according to the original school calendar.
