Determining Child Custody in Texas

There are two types of custody, legal and physical, and the court considers many different things when making a decision.

  1. Legal custody involves decision making for the child, including schools, medical decisions, and religious decisions.
  2. Physical custody involves where the child spends their time and the amount of time each parent has with the child. In some cases, a custody agreement may affect the geographic region in which you may live. Additionally, while a judge is not obligated to do what they say, children 12 and older do have a say in where they will live.

In addition to helping you with your child custody agreement, we can also help you with:

How Do I Get Full Custody in Nueces County, Texas?

Trying to obtain full custody of a child in Nueces County is difficult because most of the time a court will see joint-custody as most beneficial for the child long-term. Still, if you wish to proceed, you will need to modify an existing child custody order. This can be done by motioning to modify the order, and then indicating that you desire to be the sole managing conservator. Once your court date has arrived, be sure to present only your best evidence.

Is Texas a Mommy State?

No, Texas is not a mommy state. In Texas, the law does not favor either mothers or fathers in child custody cases. Instead, the court will award custody to the parent who can best provide for the child's physical, emotional, and educational needs.

The judge will consider several factors when making a custody determination, including the child's wishes, the parent's parenting skills, the parent's ability to cooperate, and the child's living arrangements. The court will also consider the child's age and developmental stage.

In the past, Texas law did favor mothers in child custody cases. However, the state changed this law in 1973. Since then, the law has been gender-neutral. It is essential to talk to an attorney about your custody options.

Our attorney can help you understand your rights and can help you negotiate a custody arrangement that is in your child's best interests.
