Types of Child Custody Arrangements
In California, the court recognizes that shared custody is the most beneficial arrangement for a child. Barring any history of domestic violence, the court will likely ask you and your spouse to arrange shared custody in some form or another. However, shared custody does not mean 50/50 rights in every case.
Child custody arrangements include:
- Physical (or residential) custody with visitation rights
- Joint physical custody
- Joint legal custody
- Sole legal custody
Sole physical custody means children live with one parent at their residence, with potential visitation rights. Joint physical custody means children live with each parent for a designated amount of time. Legal custody is the right for each parent to decide about their children's upbringing (i.e. medical treatment, where they live, etc.). Sole legal custody is rare because it puts the care of a child entirely into one spouse's hands—a situation that courts are reluctant to allow unless there are aggravating circumstances.
