Custody/Conservatorship In Texas
In Texas, the term conservatorship is used to describe the legal rights and responsibilities of a parent, and possession and access refers to time spent with the children. Despite recent changes in legal terminology, the terms child custody and visitation are still commonly used outside of the courtroom.
Generally, conservatorship includes the right to make important decisions about the child’s life, including education, medical and religious matters. In Texas, the law favors both parents playing a meaningful role in the child’s life. Typically, both parents are named joint managing conservators, and share the rights and responsibilities of parenthood.
In every case, courts are guided by the principle of protecting the best interests of the child. In handling child custody matters, our lawyers are guided by this principle and committed to protecting the parental rights of our clients.
We understand that the children are what is important in these cases. We do everything in our power to resolve custody disputes amicably, exposing the children to as little strife and acrimony as possible.
