Child Custody and Visitation
Child Custody and Visitation are comprised of Legal Custody and Physical Custody.
a) Legal Custody: This involves the right to determine the children’s schools, medical care, religious upbringing, access to school records, access to medical records, etc.
b) Physical Custody: The court will typically award primary physical custody to one parent. The child will live most of his/her time with the parent who is awarded the physical custody and the other parent, referred to as the “non-custodial parent,” will be granted a visitation.
