Listening to this Texas child custody and conservatorship podcast can help people better understand how conservatorship works, and it can be confusing. People often call Attorney Sutherland reporting they have joint custody, and many times those parents are joint managing conservators with rights to child support, to determine the residence of a child and primary possession and access to the child, for example. If you only take one thing away from this podcast, custody and conservatorship are not the same in Texas divorce and family law.
