What is Child Custody?
Child custody is the legal term used to describe the legal relationship between a parent and child. There are two types of custody: physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody refers to where the child will live. Legal custody refers to the right of a parent to make decisions about their child’s welfare, including decisions about education, medical care, and religious upbringing.
There are two types of custody arrangements: joint custody and sole custody. Joint custody means that both parents have equal rights and responsibilities for their children. Sole custody means that only one parent has the right to make decisions about their child’s welfare.
