In most Texas divorce cases, unless the husband and wife agree to something different, the parents are appointed as joint managing conservators with each having all the rights and duties of a parent. One parent is normally appointed as the "primary" conservator with whom the child will reside. The other parent is given the Texas standard possession schedule outlining when they will have the child and is ordered to provide health insurance and pay child support until the child reaches 18 and graduates high school. If the parents are not in agreement or the situation is out of the ordinary, the court may order a different possession schedule and award different rights to each parent.
