Child Custody Representation

Effective Advocacy from Denton & Collin County Family Law Lawyers: 888-570-7899

Even in the most amicable of divorce proceedings, agreeing on a satisfactory child custody arrangement can be an arduous process. The state of Texas makes it a priority to give both parents access to their children following a divorce, but that can happen in one of two ways. One parent can be given sole custody, also known as sole managing conservatorship, or custody can be shared through a joint managing conservatorship. The significance of these arrangements has more to do with decision-making responsibilities than living arrangements, which is why the state generally prefers naming each parent a managing conservator.

Managing conservators have the authority to make decisions regarding

  • extra-curricular involvement
  • finances
  • medical care
  • moral standards
  • religious participation
  • schooling and education

When managing conservatorship is shared, major decisions must be made by both parents. In a sole managing conservatorship, only one parent is given power to make decisions. The other parent has established visitation rights but has no legal, decision-making power. Unless one parent has a history of domestic violence, the court is unlikely to establish a sole managing conservatorship.
