Types of Child-Custody Arrangements

While the family courts in Texas try to award shared custody, it may not always in the best interest of the child. Shared custody is typically an ideal arrangement because both parents are given meaningful time with their child. Thus the child benefits from having both parents involved in their life. However, at times, sole custody is better for the sake of the child. If this is your concern, please be sure to speak with our family law team at Mark Morales & Associates in Georgetown.
