Sole custody includes both legal and physical custody which means the child lives primarily with one parent who will make major decisions for the child. Situations such as violence, substance abuse, and discord may require sole custody.


Joint custody can be a possible solution for both parents wanting as much time as possible with their children. Both parents will share the responsibility of major

decision-making for their children. The child’s relationship with their parents, financial status of the parents, the parent’s work schedules, and the child’s desires will all be considered in joint custody cases.


A Texas child custody case usually involves designating one parent as the custodial “primary parent.” The primary residence of the child is with the custodial parent, while the non-custodial parent is ordered a visitation schedule. The needs and best interests if the child will be considered when determining this parenting plan.
