Texas family courts make custody decisions based on the child's best interests. As a result, it is very rare for one parent to be granted sole conservatorship (custody) of their child after a divorce. Most cases allow both parents to have some form of possession of or access to their child. "Parenting time" is the term used for the agreement or court order that defines how much time each parent spends with their child and how involved each parent is in making life decisions for the child.
Many parenting agreements are drafted between the two parents without the court having to intervene. If the matter is disputed, however, the matter must be taken to court and litigated before a judge. Both sides must present their arguments and, in the end, the judge will determine the parenting schedule and decision-making rights for each parent.
