You cannot have sole custody without physical custody. If your ex has physical custody, you are the non-custodial parent.

User Avatar

They are two terms used interchangeably that essentially mean the same thing. Primary physical custody refers to the parent with whom the child resides with the majority of the time but, joint custody has been granted. Sometimes a parent may have primary physical custody but the other parent may have legal custody, meaning one parent shall have the right and the responsibility to make the decisions relating to the health, education, and welfare of a child." This parent can make all decisions without seeking in put from the other parent.

If a woman gives custody to someone else without informing her husband or getting consent, it is called kidnapping. She could go to prison. She might not like it. On the other hand, she gets three hots and a cot.

There is physical (residential) custody and legal custody. If you share legal custody with the other parent of if they have visitation rights you cannot move the children without the non-custodial parent's consent and/or court approval.There is physical (residential) custody and legal custody.

Not take but they can petition for custody in court. Unless the parent is unfit the most they will get is probably shared custody though.

Primary physical custody refers to the parent with whom the child resides with the majority of the time but, joint custody has been granted. Sole custody is when the child resides solely with the named parent giving that parent the legal right to make all decisions (medical, educational, etc.) concerning the child. Sole custody does not mean the non custodial parent can be denied the rights of parental visitation. โ€ข In my case, I have primary custody AND sole legal cstody. Being primary custody gives the father the right to make a decision in the event of an emergency, but that's about it. It basically means the father can see the child and take hher out of my home. But, because I have sole legal, he cannot make any decisions concerning anything religious, medical, educational, etc. Having sole legal gives me the right to get her a passport without his permission as well! Sole/Primary/Joint custody essentially just determines where the child lives and who the main care-taker is. It is "legal custody" that determines the right to make decisions.

It depends on the law where you live and your custody order. If the father has sole legal custody (as opposed to physical custody) he would be able to make that decision without input from the mother. If legal custody is joint or the mother has sole legal custody, no he could not.

It depends on who has legal custody. One parent may have primary physical custody with both parents having joint legal custody.If the parents share legal custody they both have the right to make decisions regarding the child. Of course, they must eventually agree on a course of action. If one parent has sole legal custody that parent has the right to make decisions without any input from the non-custodial parent. That is why many judges only award joint legal custody to parents who are mature, who have the best interest of their child as their main priority and who have a good working relationship. If the parents do not get along and one parent is likely to sabotage every decision-making situation, many judges are more likely to award legal custody to the parent with primary physical custody and grant visitations to the non-custodial parent.It depends on who has legal custody.

If he has primary custody or even visitation rights, you cannot take his child far enough away that he cannot readily exercise his custody/visitation rights unless he gives you permission to do so.

User Avatar

The term "primary joint custody" is contradictory. Primary (or sole) custody means one parent has full rights of decision as to the care of the child, including education, medical treatment, etc. Joint custody means parents share equal rights in major decisions such as moving the child to another state or country. One parent cannot legally take such action without the other's consent or without permission of the court.

User Avatar

No If by moving the party means a move within the jurisdiction of the court that mandated the custodial order, then yes, you may relocate. If the question refers to relocating outside of said jurisdiction, the primary custodial will need the written notarized permission of the non primary custodial parent and/or permission from the court.

If the mother has legal custody but leaves the state and doesn't have physical custody of your child then that must mean the child is with someone who doesn't have custody. I assume you are not married. In that case, you must establish your paternity in court and request legal and physical custody. If the mother has left the state without taking her child with her the court will certainly want to know who the child is with and will certainly consider awarding legal custody to the other biological parent, you.Perhaps you can convince the mother to consent to your getting legal and physical custody. If not sole custody, then joint legal and physical custody.You should consult with an attorneywho specializes in custody issues. The attorney can review your situation and explain your rights and options.

User Avatar

No, not if your mother has sole physical custody. If there is a joint custody arrangement, you'd still need the cooperation of both parents to make it happen.

No. If the parents cannot make an agreement regarding custody on their own the court will make a determination that is in the best interest of the child. The parent without physical custody will be given a visitation schedule that must be followed by both parents.No. If the parents cannot make an agreement regarding custody on their own the court will make a determination that is in the best interest of the child.

Yes because when you can move out with or without custody.

No. Your parents must come to an agreement and change the custody order filed in the family court.

You indicate they have "Contact", but what is the status of Custody? If the Father has visitation, partial or shared custody, legal& or physical....No, you cannot change the Surname of the child without the Fathers explicit consent!!
