Custody Lawyer > Child Custody > Best Interest

If parents are unable to develop an agreed parenting plan the courts will decide custody.  A judge is not always aware of the best interest of the family, so they will always decide custody based on the best interest of the child/children.

This is serious and as an experienced San Antonio Child Custody Attorney I will be able to assist you.

Sec. 153.002.  BEST INTEREST OF CHILD.  The best interest of the child shall always be the primary consideration of the court in determining the issues of conservatorship and possession of and access to the child.

Sec. 153.003.  NO DISCRIMINATION BASED ON SEX OR MARITAL STATUS.  The court shall consider the qualifications of the parties without regard to their marital status or to the sex of the party or the child in determining:

(1)  which party to appoint as sole managing conservator;

(2)  whether to appoint a party as joint managing conservator;  and

(3)  the terms and conditions of conservatorship and possession of and access to the child.
