There are two types of conservatorship (also known as custody) in Texas: managing conservatorship and possessory conservatorship. Managing conservatorship grants the parent(s) physical custody of the child and the ability to care for them and make decisions for them. In a managing conservatorship, the court can order a sole conservator or joint conservators. The other type of custody is possessory conservatorship, which allows the parent to visit their child on a scheduled basis.
Most parents entering a divorce will want full custody of any children. While winning full custody can be difficult and require much mediation, it can also be very rewarding.
Some of the benefits you can expect after winning full custody of your child or children include:
In order to obtain a court order for child custody, you must be able to prove to the court that it is in your child's best interest to be in your care.
