When two married parents obtain a divorce in the state of Texas, they must make arrangements for the care and nurturing of their child or children. Their right to maintain physical custody of their child will be subject to compromise, as will their right to make important decisions for their offspring. Whether they arrive at new arrangements between themselves through negotiation and mediation or their divorce goes to trial, the court will have a responsibility to review their decision and be certain that the best interests of the child are being met.
