Custody vs. Parenting Time

There are two types of custody: legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody involves the making of significant decisions about a child's life, including medical decisions, religious upbringing, and educational decisions. Physical custody refers to where a child lives and who is responsible for the day-to-day care of the child. In both cases, courts may award the parents either shared or sole custody of the child.

When determining custody, the courts consider many factors, including:

  • The ability of each parent to make decisions for the child
  • Parents’ ability to communicate effectively with one another
  • Living situations of both parents
  • The day-to-day needs of the child
  • Any special needs of the child, such as medical issues or disability
  • Any special circumstances that impact a parent’s ability to care for the child
  • Whether or not there was abuse or a parent has been deemed unfit

If one parent is awarded sole physical custody of a child, the courts will often establish a parenting time agreement. A parenting time order is important in that it ensures that the non-custodial parent can maintain a meaningful relationship with their child or children.
