Types of Custody

Custody essentially refers to a parent’s rights to make major decisions for the child. These decisions typically involve education, medical care, religious upbringing, and the like.

Types of custody include:

  • Joint legal custody: Both parents are involved in making major decisions on the child’s behalf
  • Sole legal custody: One parent is the primary decision maker on the child’s behalf

In addition, physical custody — also known as residential custody — may be awarded to a parent. This means that the child will live with that parent or, if shared physical custody is awarded, the child will split his or her time between both parents.
