Types of Custody in Texas

Legal & Physical Custody in Texas

Legal custody refers to the parent’s ability to make important decisions regarding the child. These types of decisions include types of education, extracurricular activities, religious preferences, medical choices, etc.

Physical custody refers to which parent the child will live with.

Sole & Joint Custody in Texas

Just as they sound, sole custody is when one parent has full custodial rights over the child or children, while joint custody is when both parents share these custodial rights. Sole and joint custody could apply to legal and physical custody separately, or one of them could apply to both.

If a parent is awarded sole physical custody, then the other parent will likely be able to get visitation rights if it’s in the best interests of the child.

How Is Child Custody Decided in McKinney?

Cases involving child custody are often the most difficult to navigate, especially when two parents or spouses do not agree on who should take care of the child. We strive to provide you with the honest guidance and representation you need to protect your child's best interests.

Child custody is typically decided by a judge in family court, based upon a variety of factors. These include:

  • The child's age
  • The relationship between the child and each parent
  • The health and age of each parent
  • Each parent's ability to provide for the child
  • The amount of time each parent has to spend
  • Any record of domestic violence
  • Any record of drug or alcohol abuse

Child Custody Disputes & Enforcement

While it would be great if two parents could simply decide on a visitation schedule and propose this to the judge, this is often not the case. If you and your spouse (or the other parent of your child) have been fighting about a workable custody arrangement, we are here to advocate for you. We can also help you with enforcement if a child custody order was put in place and the other parent is refusing to stick to it.
