Child custody evaluations

When a couple with children separate or seek divorce, there are a number of ways to determine how custody of the children will be decided. Custody means three things: (i) legal custody or decision making; (ii) physical custody or a schedule of when the children will be with either parents; and (iii) all other aspects of raising the children (such as, religion, education, medical, mental health issues). So, how do you deal with these issues if you and the other parent cannot agree?

Legal Custody - Different Types Of Legal Custody

I have discussed two types of legal custody. Recall that legal custody means which parent makes major decisions relating to the children. There is sole legal custody in which one parent makes major decisions relating to the children and the other parent has no input into the decision. Then, there is joint legal custody where both parents must make major decisions relating to the children together and one parent cannot make the decision on his or her own.
