I have heard that the presumption in Texas is that the parents of a child should be appointed as "joint managing conservators." Does that mean that the parents split time with the children 50-50?

No. “Joint Managing Conservators” means that the parents share rights and duties to to their children. This means that both parenst should be involved in the making of important decisions for their child, such as school issues and when a medical decision is needed. The “Standard Possession Order” awards possession and access to the children. And, it is presumed to be in the best interest of a child who is 3 years of age or older.
