What are the different types of child custody in New Jersey?


In New Jersey, there are two categories of child custody, legal custody and physical custody: 


•  Legal custody, refers to the parent that has the authority to make major decisions for a child regarding safety and welfare, such as educational, medical, and religious.  Legal custody can either be sole (only one parent), or joint (shared by both parents).  


•  Physical custody, sometimes called residential custody, generally refers to the parent the children live with. Physical custody can either be sole (the children live primarily with one parent, and the other parent may have visitation rights) or joint (both parents spend equal amounts of time with the children).
