Understanding Child Conservatorship in Texas

In Texas, parents are usually given the opportunity to jointly manage their child’s wellbeing. In certain situations, however, the court may designate alternatives, including managing custodianship and possessory conservatorship. Possessory conservators can only visit their children, whereas managing conservators take primary responsibility for the decisions made in a child’s life.

Just a few of the examples of the aspects authorized by the managing custodial parent include decisions involving:

  • Home location
  • Place of education
  • Kind of medical and psychological care
  • Type of religion or faith
  • Financial decisions and legal rights
  • Ability to participate in extracurricular activities

Securing Fair Visitation & Parenting Time

Just because one parent has been given the physical custodianship of a child does not eliminate the rights of the non-custodial parent to build a strong, loving relationship with their child. If you are not the primary physical caretaker of your child, you still are entitled to visit and parent them. The only way that a parent would not have equal access for connecting with their child is if there is a proven history of sexual abuse, child neglect, or domestic violence between that parent and their child, or with their ex-partner. Get in touch with our child custody lawyer in TX so we can examine the details of your situation and support you in having fair, quality time with your child.
