Conservatorship is the legal term for what is commonly referred to as child custody. That is, conservatorship is the term for the parental rights and duties exercised by the party or parties who have custody of a child or children.

When conservatorship is agreed to or determined by the courts, there are a few options:
Child visitation is more properly referred to as possession and access. There are standard guidelines for possession and access under Texas law, and they may apply to your case. However, the standard guidelines do not apply in all cases and may not be best for the child and other parties. At The Gilmet Law Firm, we can work with you, your spouse, and your spouse's attorney to come up with a visitation agreement that is in the child's best interest and benefits the participating parties.
At The Gilmet Law Firm, we feel that mediation and compromise are often the best way to reach agreements and settlements during the Texas divorce process and/or child custody battle. Reaching an agreement and not allowing the judge or a jury to make the decision keeps you in charge of the outcome and can save you considerable money in litigation costs. Moreover, having the ability to reach an agreement often sets the future relationship of the parties on a positive path. The attorneys at the Gilmet Law Firm can help you ensure that the agreement that is reached is one that will be approved by the Court.
Ideally, parents should be able to work out an appropriate custody arrangement, however, The Gilmet Law Firm understands that this may not always be an option. In situations where the parties are unable to reach an agreement in the best interest of the child, we are prepared to passionately represent you and the your child's best interest in all proceedings. Our Texas family lawyer Yexenia Gilmet will work vigorously with you to help ensure that your position, concerns and desires are properly represented.
