Types of Child Custody in Texas

In child custody cases, judges are responsible for deciding who will receive parental custody of the children. These custody decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, often based on the information or evidence that is provided to the judge by both sides.

Typically, child custody cases result in one of four different decisions:

  • Full physical custody
  • Full legal custody
  • Shared physical custody
  • Shared legal custody

No matter the complexity of the situation, judges always put the children's best interests first in their legal decisions. They will carefully examine the evidence to determine which parent will provide the best and most healthy environment for the children. As such, it is imperative to retain legal counsel during this time to ensure that you are treated fairly and that your parental rights are upheld.

Parents’ Rights

Mothers and fathers have equal rights to their children. Though many courts used to display a bias toward mothers – often favoring them over fathers in custody decisions – today, things are much different. Courts respect mothers’ and fathers’ rights equally.

If you believe that your parental rights have been violated either by your child’s other parent or by a court decision, the Audu Law Firm can help.

Grandparents’ Rights

In many cases, grandparents wish to have access to their children. Unfortunately, grandparents generally need to file suit to request custody or visitation – parents’ rights ultimately trump grandparents’ rights in Texas. If you are a grandparent seeking visitation time or full custody of your grandchild, Sugar Land child custody attorney Lilian Audu can help.

Paternity

Paternity is the action of establishing fatherhood. If paternity is not established voluntarily when the child is born, any party – a mother, a father, or even a court – can begin a paternity action to determine the father of a child.

By establishing paternity:

  • Fathers can exercise their parental rights and gain access to their child
  • Mothers can receive child support from the father of their child
  • Children can have a relationship with both parents
  • Children can have a better understanding of their family health history
