Wendy Davis’ Divorce Decree

With all the right-wing accusations that Wendy Davis either gave up or lost custody of her children, how about if we look at the actual divorce decree from November 15, 2005?

First, only one daughter was involved.  Her older daughter, Amber, from her first marriage was no longer a minor.

The decree gave Wendy Davis and her ex-husband “joint managing conservatorship” for their daughter Dru, who was 17.  Texas got rid of the term custody in the mid-1990’s and switched to conservatorship.  Joint conservatorship is what most of us would think of as joint custody.
