Under the Texas Family Code, there is a presumption that it is in the best interest of the children for the non-residential conservator to have visitation with the children according to a Standard Possession Order, or “standard visitation.” Generally, this means that the non-residential conservator will be entitled to possession of the children on the first, third, and fifth weekends of each month (based on the position of the Friday), for some time on Thursdays during the school term, a certain amount of summer possession, and defined holiday visitation. In September of 2021, updates were made to the Texas Family Code, which added provisions for when parents live 50 miles apart or less. The new rules state that if the non-residential conservator lives 50 miles or less from the child’s primary residence, that conservator will automatically have the right to a more expanded visitation schedule, whereby, for example, weekend possession occurs from the time school is dismissed on Friday and continues until the time school resumes on Monday (as opposed to 6 p.m. Friday to 6:00 p.m. Sunday). Of course, exceptions to this can apply or may be agreed upon. In addition, a different schedule applies under the Standard Possession Order when the non-residential conservator resides more than 100 miles from the child’s primary residence, including a longer period of summer possession, no weekday possession, and so forth.
