Legal Custody in Texas

Mathur Law Offices - Proudly Serving Families Since 1999

Mathur Law Offices, P.C., was originally founded by Mr. Sanjay Mathur in 1999, and we have been providing outstanding family law representation ever since. We have an in-depth understanding of Texas' family laws, and can provide you with the skilled advocacy you need to protect your parental rights.

Ms. Sinha joined our practice in 2009, and brings unique qualifications to our family law practice. She is not only a certified mediator, but she also serves as an Attorney Ad Litem for the Collin County courts in child protective litigation. With her superior knowledge and qualifications, she is a great asset to our firm when it comes to handling child custody cases.

What is legal custody?

Texas does not use the term legal custody, instead it uses the term "conservatorship." Conservatorship means the right a parent has to make important decisions for his or her child. Such decisions determines:

  • Where the child lives
  • Where the child attends school
  • Which doctor the child sees
  • What dental, medical, or mental health treatment the child receives
  • Religious upbringing
  • Extracurricular activities

The rights described above can be shared by both parents, or one of the parents may hold these rights exclusively. Further, one parent may have more rights than the other parent, or both parents may share in these rights.

When it comes to deciding on conservatorship (legal custody), the parents may reach an agreement concerning these rights on their own, subject to the judge's approval. If the parents are in dispute and are unable to reach an agreement over conservatorship, then the judge will decide for them.
