When it comes to divorce, most parents’ first thoughts turn to their children. Child custody can be a battleground for a divorcing couple. If you believe the issue of child custody is a none-sum game, it may be best to pursue one specific type of custody. Fathers interested in majority custody should consider pursuing a sole-managing conservatorship, and the Law Office of Michael D. Tracton PC can help with this endeavor.
When pursuing primary custody, it is first best to determine if this is in fact, in the best interests of the child. If the mother of the child is unsuited to being a large part of the child’s life, pursuing a sole-managing conservatorship may be best. This is essentially sole custody, and it means you as the father and the main parent make the main decisions determining the child’s well-being including primary residence, medical treatments, receiving child support, and much more.
Historically, fathers have had a more difficult time than mothers when asking for sole-managing conservatorships. This is because mothers were thought to be the best provider for children. However, these traditional views are changing. If it is in the best interest of the child, it is recommended that the father seek sole-managing conservatorship of the child.
