Custody Lawyer > Child Custody > RIGHTS AND DUTIES DURING PERIOD OF POSSESSION

Sec. 153.074.  RIGHTS AND DUTIES DURING PERIOD OF POSSESSION.  Unless limited by court order, a parent appointed as a conservator of a child has the following rights and duties during the period that the parent has possession of the child:

(1)  the duty of care, control, protection, and reasonable discipline of the child;

(2)  the duty to support the child, including providing the child with clothing, food, shelter, and medical and dental care not involving an invasive procedure;

(3)  the right to consent for the child to medical and dental care not involving an invasive procedure;  and

(4)  the right to direct the moral and religious training of the child.

Custody is serious & nothing causes a request to modify faster than being negligent.  Understanding your rights and responsibilities as the custodial and noncustodial parent can be key to have a successful parenting plan.
