Conservatorship and Possession

A case out of Dallas was heard in 2007 that involved a mother and father who had one child.  When the child was two, they divorced and the mother was appointed sole managing conservator.  Ten years later, the father filed to modify custody.  The father lived in Oklahoma at the time and the mother and child lived in Texas.

The trial was to a jury who gave the father sole custody.  The evidence suggest that the mother had been abusive to the child and further the child had executed a preference to live with the father.  Mother represented herself pro se.  Mother waived her complaints about the jury charge for failure to object.  The court of appeals found sufficient evidence to support the jury's verdict.
