The state of Texas refers to sole custody, also known as full custody, as sole managing conservatorship. There are very limited circumstances where a judge will agree to grant one parent full custody in Texas but it is possible. Sole managing conservatorship may or may not be necessary depending on your goals.
The state of Texas presumes that both parents will be named as joint managing conservators, meaning both parents will share the rights and responsibilities for the child. These responsibilities, among other parental duties, will be outlined in detail by the court. However, one parent may still be granted the right to exclusively make decisions for the child in this case.
One thing to keep in mind about JMCs is that they do not automatically insinuate that both parents will split their time equally with the child. These custody and visitation rights are outlined in a separate visitation order known as a standard possession order (SPO).
If you think the other parent is unfit, speak to our child custody lawyer. Your child’s safety and well-being are at risk, so you need to move forward and take action quickly.
