Child custody is called “conservatorship” in Texas. Conservatorship laws outline the legal rights and responsibilities a conservator has as the child’s parent.
Typically, a judge will determine conservatorship unless both parents can mutually agree on a custody plan, in which case the court will simply need to approve the written agreement. A judge’s primary concern when determining conservatorship is the best interest of the child.
Conservators have rights, such as the right to:
In Texas, there are two types of conservatorships: joint managing conservatorships (JMC) and sole managing conservatorships (SMC).
In Texas, visitation is known as the “possession of and access to a child.” A parent will not be able to get this access if the court determines it is not in the child’s best interest or if it poses a threat to their health or safety.
Once a judge determines that a parent is fit to have access to the child, they will create an SPO according to specific guidelines. Parents can also create this agreement themselves and have the court sign off on it.
