Child Custody in Texas
Protect Your Child's Best Interests
In the Texas Family Code, child custody is known as conservatorship. Tex. Fam. Code Chapter 153 states that custody is granted to (a) certain individual(s) based on the best interests of the child. In order to obtain custody during and after a divorce, you will need to prove to the court that your child's best interests involve you having custody.

Types of Conservatorship
Before you start fighting for custody of your child, it is important that you know what types of conservatorship the court can order. Joint managing conservatorship is ordered when the court decides that both parents need to be involved in the child's life. A joint parenting plan will be drafted and entered to establish which parent the child spends time with at what time, such as one parent during the work week and the other parent during the weekends. The court can also order sole managing conservatorship to one parent, but the other parent can be granted possessory conservatorship allowing them visitation rights with their child.
