Understanding child custody laws in Texas

When you have a child and aren't with the child's other parent any longer, you will likely need to address child custody matters. In Texas, child custody is known as conservatorship. There are two ways that conservatorship can be established. The first is through a parenting plan that you and your child's other parent come up with and file with the court. The second is that the court makes the decision without having a parenting plan filed.
