Custody Arrangements

Texas courts presume that it is usually in the best interests of a child to split custody evenly between two parents. This means that parents will have equal decision-making authority and will split physical custody 50/50. The specific schedule, however, will depend on the parties’ circumstances.

At this point, judges are also often willing to consider a child’s preferences, which may have changed from when he or she was younger.
