Child Custody and Visitation Types
Custody of a child means the legal status awarded by a court for the care, control and maintenance of that child. There are two parts to custody: physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody means where the children live legal custody means which parent has the right to make important decisions about the children. Unless there is domestic violence in the family, or the child has special needs the court will typically order joint legal custody. The court will order the type of physical custody based upon the needs of the children and abilities of the parents. Physical custody may include sole physical custody, joint physical custody and split physical custody.
