Sole Custody vs. Joint Custody

The unfortunate and obvious truth regarding a divorce is that neither parent can have the children in their care 100 % of the time. It can often be a difficult reality to address as a parent that you will not be parenting your child at all times. Absent a parent who is a abusive or neglectful to a child, both parents will have custody rights. The fight in court often surrounds the issue of sole vs. joint custody. One parent may want sole custody and the other joint, or perhaps both parents are fighting for a sole custody arrangement. Custody is broken up into legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody refers to the decision making authority over the child. A party with sole legal custody will have the right to make major life decisions for the children relating to schooling, medical care, religious upbringing, etc. Physical custody refers to the overnight living situation for the children. Whatever the case may be, the court’s job is to determine what type of custody arrangement is in the best interests of the children.
