Facts about joint managing conservatorship

The legal term for joint child custody in Texas is a joint managing conservatorship. Texas courts work under the assumption that in most situations, it is in the best interest of the child that both parents be conservators. Sole managing conservatorship is generally reserved for situations where the other parent has a history of criminal activity, family violence or has previously had little to no contact with the child.
