Maryland calls “Child Custody” custody
Texas calls “Child Custody” conservatorship

What term does YOUR state use to define custody?


Apparently Texas elects to not use the word custody, in my attempts to find out why, I learned conservatorship is a legal concept, similar to but not exactly the same as legal guardian, custody is a form of guardianship, what I do not yet know is what each state’s nuances are and what legal “hairs they split”, and I’ll post a link back to the first law office in each state that replies back to the poll

Attorney’s that reply to answer this question will get a link back to their website
