Conservatorship in Texas

Unlike other states, Texas uses the term "conservatorship" instead of "child custody." The parent who is granted custody (usually named the custodian) is known as the "conservator," and is the parent who is given legal rights over the child or children. While it is possible to reach an agreement out of court, parents who are unable to agree on major points will likely require a family court judge to preside over their case. Whether you need legal help with drafting a written agreement or are seeking legal advice for a court case, call Villa & White to get the help you need.

A parent who is granted conservatorship is given the following rights:

  • Ability to discuss the child's medical needs with physicians
  • Make decisions about the child's education
  • Consent to medical treatment

Joint Managing & Sole Managing

The two types of child custody in Texas are joint managing conservatorship (JMC) and sole managing conservatorship (SMC). In a JMC, both parents share legal responsibility for the child, with each parent being given specific responsibilities. In an SMC, one parent is granted the legal right to make decisions over the child's well-being. The court may grant conservatorship to only one parent for a number of reasons, such as when a parent has a history of violence.
