One of the most stressful aspects of a divorce is the adverse affects it may have on the children involved. If parents fight over the custody of their children or one parent refuses to let the other have visitation with the child, it becomes emotionally painful. In the matters of custody and child visitation, Texas laws mandate that the child’s best interests are the primary concern.

Texas Child Visitation Laws

According to the Texas Family Code, the family courts will specify in a standard possession order the agreed upon or court-ordered possession guidelines for divorced parents. The court’s determination of visitation rights for the non-custodial parent will always be decided in the best interests of the child. Other factors that may be taken into consideration include:

  • Age of the child
  • Developmental status of the child
  • Circumstances of the child
  • Needs of the child
  • Circumstances of both custodial parent (managing conservator) and non-custodial parent (possessory conservator)
  • Other relevant factors
