Deciding the Right Custody Plan for Your Family

In Texas, child custody is granted in the form of a joint managing conservatorship (joint custody) or a sole managing conservatorship (sole custody). Custody plans must take into consideration a wide range of factors. An attorney can help walk you through the details and negotiate a fair solution.

When creating custody plans, parents should address issues such as:

  • Who will get custody of your children
  • Where the child will live
  • How the child will travel between households
  • How the child will spend time during the breaks
  • How parents should communicate regarding the child
  • Educational, medical, and other decisions on the child’s upbringing

Parents are encouraged to cooperate as much as possible to decide on an arrangement that works for them. If not, a judge will be responsible for making the final decision.
