Hello!

I hate to say it, but there is no way in God’s green earth I would turn the decision of my child’s wellbeing over to a psychologist whose values do not remotely resemble mine, much less do I know if they have a clue. You could get a great conservator doctor or a liberal Einstein […]

Hello!

What is joint custody? What is sole custody? In Texas, courts divide child custody issues into two different categories: conservatorship and possession and access. Conservatorship is basically the rights and duties of the parents (i.e. to make decisions for the child regarding schooling, medical decisions, and psychiatric decisions, among many other things). Conservatorship can be […]

Hello!

In the United States, state laws involving custody do not automatically favor the mother over the father, but courts apply the best interests doctrine to determine what is in the best interests of the child. While a father’s legal rights with a newborn are usually the same as with an older child, cases involving newborn […]

Hello!

  Unless there is a history of parental misconduct, such as domestic violence or abuse, Texas courts typically award divorcing parents “joint managing conservatorship” (referred to as “joint legal custody” in some states) over their child. This means the parents will share the right to make important decisions about their child’s life, including where the […]
