Why would you give up the right to joint legal unless you intentionally want to give your wife all of the decision making rights regarding your child. If you have no problem with that, then give her sole legal custody. What you really should do is have a face to face consultation with a family law attorney to find out what this means before signing or doing anything. You need to educate yourself on what you could be giving up.

Don't do it. If you want equal say over your children, retain as much legal and physical custody that you can. California law presumes that children are better off with frequent and continuing contact with both parents.
