Child Custody Factors in Texas

Child custody decisions in Texas are based on the “best interest of the child” standard. This standard is found in the Texas Family Code Section 153.002.

According to the best interest of the child standard, the child’s best interest is the court’s primary consideration when deciding child custody, visitation, and support. There are several factors the court may consider when determining a child’s best interest.

These factors are found in the Texas Supreme Court case Holley v. Adams and include:

  • The desires of the child
  • The emotional and physical needs of the child now and in the future
  • The emotional and physical danger (of one parent) to the child now and in the future
  • The parental abilities of the individuals seeking custody
  • The programs available to assist each parent
  • Each parent’s plans for the child
  • The stability of each home or proposed placement
  • The acts or omissions of the parent that indicate that the existing parent-child relationship is not a proper one
  • Any excuse for a parent’s acts or omissions
  • Any other relevant factors affecting the best interests of the child

Texas does not favor one gender over the other when awarding child custody. When appropriate, the court prefers to award a joint managing conservatorship (joint legal custody) to both parents.
