Child Custody — Possession And Access vs. Conservatorship

When people think about child custody issues, there are two types of custody that are recognized by the law; possession and access, and conservatorship. Possession and access relates to which parent sees the child on what days and for what amount of time. Conservatorship refers to the right of a parent to make important decisions on a child's behalf, such as health care decisions, religious upbringing and the like. There are many variables that go into both issues, and Kate offers her clients practical, relevant advice on these issues.

Custody Modifications

Unlike other terms of a divorce agreement, child custody may be modified if there has been a substantial change in a parent's circumstances. For example, a job offer that will entail moving across Texas, if not out of the state altogether. In these cases, a parent may seek a modification to a custody decree. The other parent may also wish to challenge a requested modification. Regardless of which side you find yourself on, Kate will be there to protect your interests every step of the way.
