The Law Office of Susanne Bonilla Harrold, P.C. is experienced with child issues in divorce matters and Suits Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR) and can help you fight for your rights and the welfare of your children.

Understanding Child Custody Rights and Options in Texas

In Texas, custody determinations are based upon who is best-suited to care for children. According to the Texas Family Code, legal custody is referred to as the conservatorship of a child. A conservator is one who is responsible for the care of a child. The parent with whom the child resides is considered as the conservator or custodial parent. The other parent is considered the non-custodial parent. Non-custodial parents may spend time with their children through visitation, unless it is legally determined not to be in the best interest of the child.

There are two basic types of custody (conservatorship):

  • Joint Custody – Both parents have equal parental rights and share major decision-making.
  • Sole Custody – One parent is awarded custody, he or she has exclusive parental rights and is able to control where the children live and make major decisions such as choice of education, health care, and religious affiliation.

In SAPCR orders, custody may be sought if a child is perceived to be in an environment that is detrimental to emotional, physical or mental well-being.

Experienced Visitation Representation in Corpus Christi

Under Texas laws, the best interest of the child is always the top consideration in awarding visitation. Incorporating a parenting plan as part of a divorce can help outline an agreement on how the children will be cared for and by whom.

If you are the non-custodial parent, you will need representation for visitation rights. Any instances of domestic violence on the part of the non-custodial parent will severely impact visitation. If you feel that your visitation rights are being violated, have been wrongly accused of family violence or are seeking a modification in regards to custody or visitation, Ms. Bonilla Harrold can help you sort things out.
