What is the difference between physical and legal custody?
Legal custody is the custodial responsibility to take care of the child and make decisions on behalf of the child. This often includes medical decisions, school decisions, religious decisions, and various other life decisions.
Physical custody is the custodial right to overnight parent-time with a child. A parent may have sole custody of their child or they may share joint custody with the other parent.
