Houston Child Custody Specialists
Houston has two basic types of child custody. The child custody laws in the Texas Family Code were changed recently to use the terms joint managing conservatorship and sole managing conservatorship These custody arrangements are known as joint custody and sole custody in other states. They refer to legal custody of the child rather than physical custody, and determine who makes decisions on the child’s behalf. In addition to the two permanent forms of custody, temporary custody may be awarded to one party pending the final divorce decree.

Child custody and visitation, otherwise referred to as possession and access, is perhaps the most complex aspect of divorce. Drawing up plans to share time with your children can be difficult to comprehend. However, with the help of an experienced Texas child custody attorney, you can find a possession and access plan that best suits your family situation.
Possession and access, also called visitation, is a court ordered plan that outlines the time that children will spend with each parent. The court has guidelines which may be applied to your case. However, we are able to present schedule alternatives to the court if your family wishes to implement a customized parenting plan.
