Forms of Child Custody Arrangements
California courts often handle custody cases with the assumption that shared or joint custody is more beneficial for your children. If you do not believe that is the case, our attorneys are not afraid to argue in court on your behalf—however, our first response is to look for a way to negotiate and settle your dispute outside of court. After all, shared custody does not mean each parent receives equal rights.
Child custody agreements generally take 4 different forms:
- Sole physical custody
- Joint physical custody
- Sole legal custody
- Joint legal custody
Sole physical custody is also known as residential custody—it simply means that children live with one parent and receive visits from the other. Joint physical custody means children live with each parent for an equal amount of time, with each providing food, shelter, medical care, etc.
Sole legal custody is a far rarer situation. Legal custody is a parent’s right to make decisions about their child’s health, education, religious upbringing, and more. Courts prefer to award joint legal custody, which (on a practical level) helps ensure that both parents are involved in a child’s life.
