“Managing conservatorship” means the relationship between a child and a managing conservator appointed by court order. “Joint managing conservatorship” means the sharing of the rights and duties of a parent by two parties, ordinarily the parents, even if the exclusive right to make certain decisions may be awarded to one party.
The Texas Family Code contains guideline visitation schedules with variations depending on the distance between the parties, the involvement of the parties in the life of the child, and the parenting abilities of the parties.
We have experience litigating issues concerning conservatorship, possession schedules, and parenting plans. The court's central inquiry will be, "What is in the child's best interest?"
Depending on the nature of your case, it may be as simple as drafting paperwork for parties who are able to co-parent, and in those cases where litigation is necessary, we are also here to help.
