It is well-known by everyone that custody battle is difficult and time consuming. Parents who have engaged in a custody battle will often struggle as either side can become petty and vindictive especially in a situation where one parent is seeking for full custody. Custody battle may leave you being worried about not being treated fairly and potentially losing the legal right to care for your child.
For anyone that is going through custody battle, it is important to know the difference between legal custody and physical custody.
A parent who has been given LEGAL CUSTODY means he or she will have the authority in regards to the health and welfare of the child or any decision which may affect the child.
On the other hand, PHYSICAL CUSTODY refers to matters such as the child’s place of resident or the amount of time a parent may spend with his or her child.
