Who Makes Decisions About Child Custody?
Texas courts generally make these decisions about child custody based on what is in the child’s best interest. Judges consider a variety of factors, including:
- Your child’s age
- Your child’s preference if they are 12 or older
- Each parent’s relationship with your child
- Each parent’s health
- Each parent’s ability to financially support the child
- Any history of abuse, neglect or other mistreatment
While family court will ultimately determine who receives custody of your child, it is possible to protect your rights as a parent and your relationship with your child. By exploring your options and making your case to the court, you can make your voice heard.
