Child Custody And Visitation Are Different

Child custody and visitation rights allow divorcing parents to maintain close relationships with their children, but they’re two very different arrangements.

Child Custody

Also known as “conservatorship” in Texas, child custody relates to a divorcing parent’s legal rights and responsibilities regarding their child’s upbringing, including decisions about education, health care and religious upbringing. A court may either award conservatorship to one parent or joint conservatorship, dividing the responsibilities between the two parties.

Factors that a court considers to determine child custody include:

  • The child’s preferences
  • The health of all parties involved (the child, the parents)
  • The stability of each parent’s home environment

When selecting a conservator, the court will always put the child’s best interests at heart.


Visitation in Texas refers to a parent’s “possession and access” to their child. It specifically applies to nonconservator parents and the time they can spend with their children. A court will determine a schedule for the nonconservator parent’s time with the child. In cases where the child’s safety is at risk, the court can also order supervised visitation.
