Legal Custody

Legal custody is the right and the responsibility to make decisions relating to the health, education and welfare of a child. Decisions regarding schooling, and medical and dental care, for example, are made by a parent with legal custody. The court can make a sole legal custody award, where only one parent has this right or a joint legal custody award where both parents share this right.

Physical Custody

Physical custody is a designation of which parent a child will reside with. Sole physical custody means that a child shall reside with and be under the supervision of one parent, subject to the power of the court to order visitation.
