Greetings. In a prior Blog post, we covered Custody. Click here to read that Blog post first before finishing this one if you have not read it yet.

In the Custody blog post, we touched on who the child or children may reside with (Physical Custody – click here to read that Blog post), and who makes the decisions on the child or children’s behalf – Legal Custody: which we discuss in this Blog post below.

Legal Custody refers to making all major decisions on behalf of a child or children of the marriage. This usually means making decisions regarding a child’s school to attend, religion to practice, doctors to see, etc… There is Joint Legal Custody where both parents share Legal Custody and Sole Legal Custody where usually one parent has Legal Custody. A lot of the main arguments over Legal Custody is whether Legal Custody should be granted to one parent or be shared by both. Our law firm can help with these disputes.
