In Texas, the term “conservatorship” is used to describe child custody. In most cases, parents are appointed as joint managing conservators, which means that they share the rights and duties regarding the child, even if the exclusive right to make certain decisions is given to one of the parents, and even if they don’t have equal amounts of time with the child.
Depending on the facts of a case and the child’s best interests, courts may award sole custody to one parent, or may appoint a nonparent as a managing conservator.
