Know Your Child Custody Rights
What Is Child Custody Law?
Types of Child Custody
Sole CustodySole custody agreements grant complete custody to one parent. This parent has the right to make all major decisions with or without the other parent’s approval. The parent without custody may have visitation rights.
Joint Legal CustodyThis arrangement allows both parents equal right to make decisions about their child’s life, including schooling and medical care. However, one parent will retain physical custody of the child while the other maintains visitations rights.
Joint Physical CustodyJoint physical custody agreements state that both parents have the right to spend time with the child. Time may be split equally or unequally between both parents. These arrangements are often flexible to avoid disrupting the child’s lifestyle.
