Physical Custody is where the child resides. The judge will decide which parent the child will physically reside with. The parent who has primary physical custody will have the child at their home the majority of the time. The parent with primary physical custody is known as the custodial parent. In contrast, the non-custodial parent will receive visitation of their child.
Furthermore, if the judge deems it appropriate for joint physical custody both children will have “constant and continues contact with both parents.” For more clarification regarding custody and your rights it is beneficial to contact a family law attorney in your area. Some Family Law attorneys offer free initial consultations! It is important to interview several attorney’s to ensure you have found a perfect fit!
