Types of Child Custody
There are two types of child custody: legal and physical. Physical custody determines where a child will primarily reside, and the child’s school registration as well as contact information for medical or other purposes will be from the parent with physical custody. Legal custody, on the other hand, determines a parent’s right to make decisions about the general welfare of a child.
- Religious education and training
Choice of schools
Parenting Time & Child Custody
Commonly known as visitation, parenting time addresses the amount of responsibility of each parent to care for a child in their respective households on a weekly basis and during the holidays. Like custody, there is no presumption that parenting time should be equal between homes.
