Child Custody Agreements in Texas

In Texas, the courts encourage parents to work together to come to a custody and visitation agreement that is in the best interest of the child. However, this is often a difficult task – if parents are unable to come to an agreement, the courts will intervene. Guided by the standard rights and responsibilities outlined in the Texas Family Code, the courts evaluate a couple’s situation and establish a child custody order.

According to the Texas Family Code, the rights and duties of a parent include but are not limited to:

  • Right to physical possession of the child
  • Duty of care and protection of the child
  • Duty to support the child
  • Duty to provide medical care
  • Duty to provide and the right to make decisions regarding the child’s moral and/or religious training
  • Duty to provide and the right to make decisions about the child’s education

While the codes surrounding child custody seem relatively straightforward, achieving a child custody agreement with a former spouse is often difficult and contentious. With emotions running high, the process can be challenging.

If you live in Texas and find yourself going through a custody battle or in need of legal advice regarding your custody and visitation agreement, it is recommended that you speak with an experienced Dallas child custody lawyer.
