Understanding Joint Custody in Family Law

Generally, the courts prefer to appoint parties as joint managing conservators, which is where both separated parents are able to make decisions for the child. The court may mandate joint management in the interest of the child, but this option is not automatically fair or even. Depending on facts of the case, the court can make alterations to the cases and result. Joint custody is achievable, but the parties will require legal representation to ensure an acceptable custody scenario.

In deciding the ratio of possession and access in a joint custody matter, the court will listen to the facts and determining factors will be accounted for by the court for a decision. That information may include, but not be limited to, the parties' income, residence, health, criminal records, child's needs, relationship of parents, past parental input into childcare and/or the preference of a child, or if the child is older than 12 years of age.
