Many divorces, modifications and paternity suits involve child custody. Child custody refers to custodial awards or determinations involving a minor child. These determinations involve who has the right to make decisions about the child, or legal custody, including decisions about education, religion, medical issues, and discipline, as well as where the child will live, or physical custody. With sole custody, you alone have legal and physical custody of your child. In a joint custody arrangement, you and your ex-spouse share legal and/or physical custody of the child. If you and your spouse cannot agree on a custody arrangement, a court will likely make a child custody decision based on the best interests of your child.
