How Texas Courts Determine Child Custody

Creating a sensible parenting plan that promotes positive relationships between a child and both parents is favorable, but not always possible. If parents are not able to reach an agreement regarding the custody of their children, or if there are extenuating circumstances involved, Texas courts will determine an arrangement based on the best interests of a child. These factors may include:

  • The child's preference, if old enough
  • Current and future emotional and physical needs of the child
  • The ability of either parent to provide a stable home
  • The child's adjustment to new schools and communities
  • Any present or future emotional or physical danger to the child
