What are the Different Types of Child Custody?

There are two types of custody — legal and physical:

  • Legal Custody: Many parents share joint legal custody, which means they both have the right to make important decisions about their child’s upbringing.
  • Physical Custody: Physical custody involves providing day-to-day care and overnights for the child. Physical custody may be shared, as well.

Who is the Custodial Parent?

The determination of the custodial parent depends on where the child spends most of his or her physical custody time. Whichever parent has the child more often is considered the custodial parent, and the parent with whom the child spends less time is the noncustodial parent in joint custody situations. This also applies in sole custody situations in which the parent who retains custody of the child is considered the custodial parent.
