Basic Legalities of Child Custody

According to Texas state law, we refer to child custody and visitation arrangements as conservatorships, and the parent who is granted primary custody is called the possessory conservator of each minor child. Depending on your circumstances, we can work with both parties to form a joint conservatorship, which means each parent carries a share of the responsibility for their children’s needs. This alternative is beneficial because it avoids lengthy litigation and can result in arrangements that are in your children’s best interests.
