Texas Child Possession Orders - Standard, Expanded and Customized

The Texas Family Code in §153.312 sets out a "Standard Possession Order" for parents living within 100 miles of each other. This is often the starting point for most divorcing couples and unfortunately the ending point for too many. Many do not know that If the parent not having the primary possession of the child wants additional time, that parent can elect an Expanded Possession Order at the time the order is rendered. The Standard Possession Order provides for visitation beginning at 6:00 pm on Fridays and ending at 6:00 pm on the following Sunday on the 1st, 3rd and 5th weekends of each month. This weekend schedule, along with the holiday and summer schedules within statute allow about 91 overnight visits. The Standard order also allows for two hours on Thursdays during the school year.
