This article dissects Texas Family Code provisions relating to grandparents in light of the United States Supreme Court's Troxel case. The article was written in the Spring of 2005 while the Texas legislature was in session. The Texas legislature subsequently amended Texas' grandparent access statutes. The article provides historical background for grandparent access and an explanation of Texas family law terms such as "managing conservatorship" and "possession of and access to a child." See Grandparents' Rights Update for more recent Texas law on grandparent visitation.
