What are the types of child custody in Texas?

Category: Children

Child custody is one of the most hotly contested issues in a divorce. There are a few different child custody arrangements in Texas.
Child custody is referred to as conservatorship in Texas. With a joint managing conservatorship, the children primarily reside with one parent, but both parents have a say in the children’s upbringing.
With a sole managing conservatorship, the children live with one parent, and the visitation rights of the other parent may be the same as joint custody arrangement. The visitation arrangement will change depending upon the facts of each case. A sole managing conservatorship is generally awarded if the parents cannot get along or if there has been a pattern of violence.
