Types of Custody
Different types of custody of children
Legal CustodyA joint "legal custody" award means that both parties have equal decision making ability regarding schooling, medical care and other major life decisions. It is common for both a mother and father to be awarded joint legal custody as part of a custody case or divorce.
Physical CustodyPhysical custody is usually described on where the minor children are living. This can be broken down into "parenting time". In most custody and divorce cases, your final Judgment should describe the parenting time schedule each parent will follow to enjoy time with their children.
