Types of child custody arrangements in Fort Bend County, Texas

In Texas, child custody is known formally as conservatorship. What people colloquially call legal custody is a managing conservatorship. Therefore, if you have the authority to make decisions for your child’s health and welfare, you are a managing conservator. The responsibility for housing your child is determined under a standard possession order. Parental rights and responsibilities are defined by the following types of arrangements:

  • Joint managing conservatorship — The parents share authority for making decisions for the child’s health, education, and welfare. The order of possession may also provide for shared physical custody of the child.
  • Sole managing conservatorship — One parent makes all major decisions and usually has sole physical custody of the child.
  • Possessory conservatorship — When one parent is named sole managing conservator, the other parent has limited rights as a possessory conservator. The possessory conservator has possession and access to the child under a defined schedule in the order of possession and usually pays child support to the other parent.

The court’s primary concern in issuing your possession order is the best interests of your child. As your advocate, we assert your parental rights and fight for a custody agreement or court order that provides every opportunity to maintain a loving relationship with your child.
