Does Custody Always Go to Just One Parent?
Custody does not have to go to one parent (sole or primary custody); joint/shared/split custody may be an option as well. There are two types of joint custody. If parents have joint legal custody, they each have equal rights to make major decisions for their child/children and must agree on these decisions, such as schooling, religion and healthcare. If parents have joint physical custody, the time each child spends with the parent is split equally.
It is possible for parents to have joint legal custody and not joint physical custody.
