Types of Child Custody in San Antonio

There are two options for child custody in Texas. Your San Antonio child custody lawyer can help you work toward a:

  • Joint managing conservatorship
  • Sole managing conservatorship

In addition, the judge can issue visitation orders when setting a custody agreement. Learn more about your options by calling our firm today.

SOLE VS. JOINT MANAGING CONSERVATORSHIPS

In most states, parents get sole or full custody. However, it’s referred to as a sole managing or joint managing conservatorship in Texas. If you are granted a sole managing conservatorship, you will be in charge of all decisions related to the child, including the living arrangements. That means your kids can live with you full-time, and you can make educational, healthcare, and other decisions.

However, the court normally grants joint managing conservatorships, which means you share responsibility with the other parent. If you have this conservatorship, both you and the other parent have rights and responsibilities related to the kids. However, they might not be equal. The judge will create an order that details the rights of each parent, including the living arrangements. Thus, the parents might not split parenting time or decision-making rights down the middle.

If you are worried about maintaining your rights, consult with a San Antonio child custody lawyer. Your attorney will advocate for you and your kids.

POSSESSION ORDERS

The court understands the importance of children having access to both parents, so it typically issues vitiation orders for the non-custodial parent to follow. These are referred to as possession orders in Texas. If the parents live within 100 miles of each other, the court will likely grant an order for visitation on the first, third, and fifth weekends each month, along with additional days throughout the year. However, if the parents live further away, the non-custodial parent can choose one of those weekends each month.

There are other options as well, so consult with a San Antonio child custody lawyer to work on a visitation schedule. Your lawyer can negotiate with the other side to create a schedule to present to the judge.

CAN CHILDREN DECIDE WHERE TO LIVE?

If your kids are 12 years of age or older, they can tell the judge where they want to live. They cannot make the final decision, but the judge will consider their wishes. Additionally, children can report abuse to the judge, if applicable. This can be hard for kids to navigate, so consult with a San Antonio child custody lawyer. Our firm works directly with families and can help your kids through this difficult process. Additionally, our firm strives to help parents create custody orders that are in the kids’ best interests, so your children’s needs will be represented when you work with us.

UNFIT PARENTS

The court doesn’t award custody to unfit parents. Some examples of unfit parents are those who have a history of drug or alcohol abuse or child abuse. Additionally, parents with an unsafe living environment are viewed as unfit. If you think the other parent is unfit, you need to protect your kids. Thus, contact our San Antonio child custody lawyer to review your case. Your attorney can present evidence to show that the other parent isn’t fit to have the kids in the home.
