It is a term used in some states to indicate who retains custody of a minor child. If parents share equal custody they are joint managing conservators. If one parent retains primary custody he or she is the sole conservator and the non-custodial parent is the possessory conservator.
The legal definition is a managing conservator is the person in whose home the child resides and the person who receives financial support for the child. The possessory conservator is the person who has visitation rights and pays the child support. Generally the "MC" has more rights in all decisions regarding the child. However, the actual rights and responsibilities of both parties are defined in the custody order at the discretion of the presiding magistrate.
XVI. At what age can a child decide with whom they want to live? At age 12 a child can sign a "Choice of Managing Conservator." This is a document filed with with the Court that allows the child to chose their primary conservator. It is very persuasive to the court. In conjunction with this document, a Motion to Modify must be filed with the Court so that the Court can modify its prior order. A Choice of Managing Conservator is not an absolute. It must be shown that it is in the best interest of the child for the non-primary to become the primary. I read this on another legal site and believe it is correct
The answer to this question depends on the laws of the state in which the guardian or conservator is appointed. In some states there is a significant difference. In others the terms may be used virtually interchangeably. In still other one or the other may not be used at all. In New Jersey, a statute in the probate laws taken in part from the American Law Institute's Uniform Probate Code provides for a "Conservator" in addition to the traditional Guardian. The differences lie in the degree of incapacity/incompetency of the person in need of the guardian or conservator, the powers of guardian or conservator and in the legal rights and abilities the person retains. For an adult, a guardian is appointed for a person who is unable to manage his/her own affairs and it requires proof by two physicians that the person is incapable of managing his/her affairs. The guardian has full powers over both the property and the person of the incapacitated person. The Guardian has full powers to invest, manage and sell property of the person. If the person is declared incapacitated and a guardian is appointed the person loses most of the legal abilities he or she normally has. For example that person may no longer execute a will. The guardian also has the power to make medical decisions. A conservator is appointed just on a showing that the person is in need of help in managing his/her affairs. The Conservator does not have full power over the person's property. It is limited to managing it and conserving it. If additional powers are needed the Conservator may go to court for a grant of the additional powers needed The Conservator has no powers over medical decisions unless specifically allowed by the court appointing the Conservator. The person is not declared incapacitated therefore he/she retains all legal abilities, such as the right to make a will and even the power to go to court and have the conservatorship vacated. In NJ, the Conservatorship functioned like a court created power of attorney, meaning the person still is able to manage his/her own affairs even if there is a disagreement with the judgment of the Conservator. Different states will have variations of the nature of a guardianship and a conservatorship; therefore a comprehensive statement of their differences is not possible here.
You can petition the court if you are: (1) 17 years of age, or at least 16 years of age and living separate and apart from the minor's parents, managing conservator, or guardian; and (2) self-supporting and managing the minor's own financial affairs. If you are not safe contact your local social services to get help.

No, minors are not allowed to make the decision as to where they want to live, whether it pertains to parental custody or guardianship issues. If the parents cannot find an equitable solution as to which is to be the primary custodian/conservator, the issue will be decided by the judge. Judges base their decision on what is in the best interest of the child/children and not on personal preferences of those persons involved. The above answer is incorrect... The legal answer is found in Section 153.008 of the Texas Family Code which provides that at the age of 10 a child may, by writing filed with the court, indicate a parental preference or choice of managing conservator in Suits Affecting Parent-Child Relationships.
A conservator is an oil tank, located above the transformer, whose function is to ensure that the oil level remains above the transformer, while allowing it to expand and contract with temperature. The breather/vent pipe allows air to be displaced from the conservator when the level rises, and to draw back in when the oil level falls.
Child's Choice of Managing Conservator (custodial or primary residential parent)If the child is 10 years of age or older, the child may, by writing filed with the court, choose the managing conservator, subject to the approval of the court. TEX.FAM.CODE ANN. § 153.008. The court retains discretion to determine whether to honor the child's choice. Further, in a non-jury trial the court may interview the child in chambers to determine the child's wishes as to conservatorship. TEX.FAM.CODE ANN. § 153.009. Upon the request of a party, the court must interview the child.This is up to the judge. The Texas law does not specifically address this. But, there are alternatives. see links
