Legal v. Physical Custody

A parent with primary physical custody has their child living with them most of the time.  The other parent usually has parenting time and is the non-custodial parent.

A parent with legal custody can make major decisions about a child’s upbringing like how the child will be educated, what religious training the child will have, and the medical care the child will receive.  Many times parents have joint legal custody, meaning the parents both make these important decisions for the child.
