A Trusted Source for Family Law Counsel for Over 20 Years
Child custody is the legal term used to refer to the rights and responsibilities awarded by a court to a parent or legal guardian to care for a child’s physical and emotional well-being. A court determining child custody should consider the child’s best interests, including the child’s safety, adjustment to their home, school, and community, and wishes of the child, when it is appropriate to consider them. The court may also consider the parent’s wishes, the quality of their relationship with the child, mental and physical health, willingness and ability to meet their child’s needs, and other factors. A court may also consider the child’s age, maturity, and preference. The parent, guardian, or other individual (such as the child welfare department or another state agency) who has legal custody of the child is referred to as the custodial parent and is the individual who makes decisions about the child’s care and upbringing.

What Types of Child Custody Exist?
The court will determine a child custody arrangement that is in the child’s best interests. The most common child custody arrangement is Joint custody. Joint physical custody is an agreed-upon arrangement in which children reside with each parent for an equal amount of time. It is not a legal determination. As the term implies, joint physical custody requires the parents to share or split time with the minor children. The amount of time spent with each parent will be determined by the parents, but it should be an equal amount of time. Commonly, children spend every other weekend and a substantial portion of the summer, holidays, and school vacations with each parent. In joint physical custody arrangements, parents typically share the responsibility for major decisions such as education, medical care, and religious upbringing. Parents typically negotiate the details of their joint physical custody arrangement. Joint legal custody is a court-ordered arrangement in which parents are granted equal decision-making authority regarding significant child welfare issues.
