Family Law Issues Related to Child Custody in Shenandoah and Montgomery

During a divorce case, parents will need to determine how they will work together to make decisions about raising their children. The right to make these types of decisions is commonly known as "legal custody," although the state of Texas uses the term "joint managing conservatorship" to describe situations in which parents have equal amounts of decision-making responsibility. It is usually presumed that parents should share legal custody, although there may be some situations where a court may determine that these responsibilities should be solely allocated to one parent.

Parents will also need to address "physical custody" of their children, which is also known as "physical possession" or "visitation." One parent will be named the custodial parent and given the right to determine the children's primary residence. The non-custodial parent will have the right to spend reasonable amounts of visitation time with the children. While a standard possession order will provide a minimum amount of time that children will live with the non-custodial parent, the parties may agree on other arrangements, such as schedules in which children spend equal amounts of time with each parent. A schedule for physical possession should also specify where children will stay on holidays or during school vacations, and parents will also need to address issues such as transportation arrangements for children, when and how parents will communicate with children, and any other rules that parents will follow.

When addressing matters related to child custody, we can ensure that parents understand their rights and options. We can help fathers protect their rights in these cases, and we work with parents who have an existing child custody order to determine how to address plans for parental relocation. We can also provide legal help with cases involving domestic violence if and when such issues arise.
