Legal Custody

Legal custody is the right and the responsibility to make decisions relating to the health, education and welfare of a child. Decisions regarding schooling, and medical and dental care, for example, are made by a parent with legal custody. The court can make a sole legal custody award, where only one parent has this right or a joint legal custody award where both parents share this right.

Physical Custody

Physical custody is a designation of which parent a child will reside with. Sole physical custody means that a child shall reside with and be under the supervision of one parent, subject to the power of the court to order visitation. Joint physical custody means that each of the parents shall have significant periods of physical custody. Joint physical custody shall be shared by the parents in such a way so as to assure a child of frequent and continuing contact with both parents
