LEGAL CUSTODY – Legal Custody refers to decision-making power concerning issues related to children, such as educational, medical, religious and other decisions. Typically, absent extraordinary circumstances, Courts in Pennsylvania will award each parent joint legal custody, meaning each parent has the right to make decisions and access information regarding the child(ren). However, there are many situations that may warrant one parent receiving sole legal custody of the child(ren), such as when there has been abuse, criminal activity, etc.
PHYSICAL CUSTODY – Physical custody refers to the time each parent spends caring for the minor children.
- Shared physical custody is when both parents share the physical custody of the children on a substantially equal basis.
- Primary physical custody occurs when one parent has physical custody of the children for the majority of the time.
Our Attorneys can assist you in determining the appropriate custody arrangement based on your unique circumstances.
