Types of Custody: Legal & Physical Custody

  • Legal custody refers to the right of a parent to make a child's major life decisions, specifically those involving education, religion and elective medical treatment. Most often, parents will share legal custody and will make these decisions jointly. But what happens when you are unable to jointly make a decision with the other parent? At times, one parent will be granted sole legal custody.
  • Physical custody refers to the child's place of residence. Often, the parent who has physical custody has the child more of the time, subject to the other party's parenting time. Often, a parenting schedule can be developed with consideration for the child's schooling and activities. Any time children are involved, the court relies on the standard of best interests of the child. What is best for your child depends on many factors.

The Truth About Child Custody, Parenting Time And Visitation Rights

It is important to choose a family law & divorce attorney who will be honest with you and provide clear information about how child custody, parenting time and visitation rights really work. How will the laws affect you and your children? Some people believe that they will be able to have sole legal and physical child custody and that the other parent will not be allowed to spend time with the children. This is rarely the case, but it does happen under certain circumstances. What are those circumstances? The real question is how that time will be split.
