Texas courts assume that most cases involving children will have joint managing conservatorship. In a JMC, both of the parties will have an equal say in raising the kids (more or less.)

However, in most of these cases, one of the parents will determine where the child will live for purposes of school. The other parent typically has a visitation schedule and pays child support.
