What is split custody? And does Texas allow it?

I’m often asked what split custody is. And in Texas, there is no such thing as split custody. There is a term called joint managing conservatorship, which is just really a fancy way of describing how two parents share rules and responsibilities for their children. And then there’s something called 50/50 possession of children. And that, I think, is closer to what people are talking about when they say split custody. 50/50 just means that both parents share equally in the amount of time they spend with their children.
