WHAT IS CHILD CUSTODY IN TEXAS?

First and foremost, what is commonly referred to as “child custody” is known in the laws of our State as “conservatorship”.

Conservatorship actually has more to do with rights and duties to a child than possession and access to the child.

RIGHTS AND DUTIES

These rights include the right to make decisions regarding the child’s wellbeing:

  1. Educational
  2. Psychological
  3. medical, etc.) as well as
  4. duties to support and protect the child’s physical safety

Even if you are not in possession of the child at this very moment, all parents have certain rights and duties to their child.
