Child Custody

Child custody, or “conservatorship,” is often the most important and difficult issue to resolve during a divorce. While both parents want what’s best for their children, they sometimes disagree on what that is.

Most divorcing or unmarried parents in Texas are named “joint managing conservators” of their children at the end of the legal process. Specific—and often joint—rights of parents are then determined based on the family’s situation. They may include determining your child's primary residence, and/or who will make educational and medical decisions for them.

Many of today’s parents want to divide parenting time more equally than in the past, or in ways that differ from the traditional weekend-centered schedule. And the Texas Family Code has been amended accordingly. Talk to us at Cleaves Family Law about the state’s detailed “Standard Possession Schedule” regarding custody arrangements, and how that Schedule can be modified based on your situation and wishes for your children.
