Texas child custody laws strive to decide over the child custody and visitation in such a way that it serves the best interests of the child.

It can offer a joint custody, where the parents become the joint conservators in making decisions regarding the child,

or it may offer sole custody.

Factors for determining custody:

If the child is over the age of twelve, the child’s preference is considered,

but for minor children, the courts consider diverse factors that include:

  • Emotional bonding and the physical needs of the child
  • Any issues of domestic violence or child abuse
  • Parent’s willingness to support the child in his/her relationships
  • Child’s adjustment to the school and the society around
