What is a standard possession order?

In the state of Texas, parents are allowed to make their own child custody arrangements in a variety of ways, as long as both parents are in agreement. If the parents cannot agree about child custody and visitation, then the court will use a schedule that was developed by the Texas Legislature. This schedule is known as the standard possession order. The SPO grants visitation to the non-custodial parent every other weekend from 6 pm on a Friday until 6 pm on a Sunday. School holidays are divided evenly between the two parents.

Two brothers may receive child custody-related prison sentences

When a marriage dissolves within the state of Texas, the divorce court may address each parent’s individual visitation and custody arrangement with any children that are involved. Child custody establishes a set routine that is meant to provide children with the most optimal and stable living condition possible.
