Does joint custody mean each parent will have equal time with the children?

Not necessarily. Many factors are considered by judges when deciding how the time with the children will be divided between the parents. Joint custody (we call it joint conservatorship in Texas) really refers to the rights of the parents. When they have joint custody, they usually have equal rights with regard to the children, not necessarily equal time.
