How Child Custody/Visitation Is Determined

After divorce or separation, it is necessary to determine where the child/ren will live and how much time he or she will spend with each parent. In Texas, child custody is determined by statute. There are a number of specific factors that are considered when determining a child custody arrangement:

  • Age of the child/ren
  • The needs of the child/ren
  • The ability of each parent to provide care for the child/ren
  • The mental and physical health of each parent
  • Other factors

Overall, Texas family courts consider the best interests of the child/ren involved when determining a child custody and visitation arrangement. If you are a mother or father looking to protect your parental rights during the divorce or separation process, please don’t hesitate to contact a family law attorney from our firm to learn how we can help.
