Child Custody Arrangements
With any child custody case, a court will typically grant one of three custody types to both parents. These custody types include:
- Joint legal custody: Both parents make equal decisions for the child, but the child often stays with one parent most of the time.
- Joint physical custody: Both parents have equal time with the child and equal say over the child’s life.
- Sole custody: One parent has sole responsibility for the child. The other parent often has visitation rights.
Based on factors such as the child’s age and preferences, if they are old enough to express their preference, as well as the willingness and ability of each parent to provide for their child, the court will issue a custody order.
