Types of Child Custody
Child custody can be arranged in several different ways. Both parents can
have equal custody of the children post-divorce, or one parent may have
majority or sole custody. Normally, the court arranges this after evaluating
the parents and their relationship with their children. Also, the court
will need to evaluate whether or not parents could work together in a
joint custody relationship.
Joint custody: When both parents have some degree of custody over the children
Sole custody: When one parent has primary custody over the child
Legal custody: Designated for the parent who makes decisions education, medical care,
Physical custody: Designated for the parent that owns the residence where the child lives
The courts can award joint legal or physical custody and may require ex-spouses
to split their time with the child equally or in a percentage that is
Acting in the Best Interests of the Child
If the court is responsible for determining child custody in your case,
then they will decide the matter in what they conclude to be the best
interests of the child.
In order to act in the best interests of the child, the court evaluates:
- The child's relationship with both parents
- The parents' willingness to allow the child to have a relationship
with the other parent
- The parents' location
- The parents history with alcohol, drugs or smoking
- The parents' ability to work together
- The health, age, employment and well-being of both parents
Why Mediation Benefits Both Parties
The courts in Texas encourage spouses to work through child custody plans
together using a mediator. At the Law Office of Bryan Fagan, the firm
can provide you with a
trustworthy and helpful mediator. In mediation, you and your spouse will sit down and calmly work out a
custody plan that works best for both of you and one that helps the children.
The judge normally adopts the parents' plan unless it is not in the
best interests of the child. This can help keep your children out of court
and maintain a calm atmosphere in the home.

in their power to help clients reach favorable results. Clients always
