What is Child Custody?

Child custody is the legal arrangement that determines where a child will live and how much time each parent will spend with them. In Texas, there are two main types of child custody:

Physical custody: This refers to where the child will live most of the time.
Legal custody: This refers to the decision-making authority for the child’s upbringing, such as education, medical care, and religious upbringing.
How is Child Custody Determined in Texas?

In Texas, child custody is determined by the best interests of the child. The court will consider a variety of factors, including the child’s age, health, and emotional well-being; the parents’ parenting skills; and the parents’ ability to provide a stable and loving home.

What Can I Expect in a Child Custody Case?

A child custody case can be a long and complex process. The first step is to file a petition for child custody with the court. Once the petition is filed, the other parent will have an opportunity to respond. The court will then schedule a hearing to hear evidence from both parents.

At the hearing, the judge will hear testimony from the parents, the child (if they are old enough), and any other witnesses. The judge will then make a decision about child custody.
