One of the most difficult aspects of a divorce is determining a child custody arrangement that preserves you children's best interests. During the stress of a divorce, it may be difficult to decide what the best situation will be. Whether you seek to devise a functioning co-parenting arrangement or obtain sole custody, the counsel of our knowledgeable child custody lawyer at the Law Office of Brett H. Pritchard can be of assistance during this trying time. Divorce is never easy, but we may be able to bring a sense of relief for your children.
In a custody arrangement, one or both parties are granted what is called conservatorship. Conservatorship is a term that refers to the parent who receives primary custody of the child. The other parent receives visitation rights. If parents want to maintain joint custody, it is also possible to seek a joint conservatorship agreement. Joint custody is the default custody arrangement in Texas.
The most important factor for determining custody arrangements in Texas is the children's best interests. Under Texas law, courts will use what are called "Holley Factors" for determining what is most beneficial to children involved.
