Texas follows the best interest of the children standard when determining conservatorship — the Texas legal term for custody. Typically, both parents are made joint managing conservators to ensure that they can have equal time raising their children.
Joint managing conservatorship also gives both parents authority to make major decisions concerning:
- Medical treatment
The judge will enable one parent to designate where the children live, or a county, such as Brazos County, and its contiguous counties could be designated as the primary residence of the children. That would mean neither parent could move away from those counties without a court order.
We provide comprehensive representation for move-away situations, visitation, and relocations. We strive to resolve issues without needing intervention from the court.
