Understanding Conservatorship In Texas

In Texas’s family court system, conservatorship refers to the physical and legal care of children. Some people also refer to this as child custody. If you and your former partner have children, you will have to determine conservatorship. In Texas, there are three types of conservators:

  • Joint managing conservators are parents who share decision-making abilities about a child’s care. This does not necessarily mean that the child spends half their time with each parent.
  • Sole managing conservators have the right to decide the child’s permanent residence, give medical or legal consent, and make decisions about the child’s education.
  • Possessory conservators do not have as many parental rights as sole managing conservators, though they may still have the right to access and possession.

The court system assumes that joint managing conservatorship is in a child’s best interests. But if there are issues like domestic violence or substance abuse, the court may grant one parent sole managing conservatorship.
