If a mother with a child enters rehab to fix her problems can the father get full custody where they already have joint custody?

It really depends. I think that the mother and father should have full custody. I say this because the mother is doing this to get better, for the benefit of her kids. Some might argue that she should not have custody because why would she had to go to rehab in the first place. It really depends. I think that the mother and father should have full custody.

What is Joint legal Custody and partial Physical Custody?

Joint legal custody indicates that both parents have the right to make joint decisions on the raising of a child (education, health care, etc.). If there are conflicts in such decisions then it is only applicable if such disagreements are reasonable in the eyes of the court. If they are deemed "unreasonable" then the parent with primary physical custody or the court makes such determinations. Partial physical custody, indicates that the child spends a portion of his or her time (specified or otherwise) with the parent (weekends, holidays, summer vacation, etc.) but resides the majority of time with the primary custodial parent.

If you have primary custidy of your child and the mother gets her on weekends who gets the child for holidays?

There is no automatic answer. I presume you are concerned about when holidays fall on weekends, and your ex is concerned that she only gets holidays when they do fall on weekends (so, never Thanksgiving).i suggest that you find and read the document that gave you primary custody, such as a court order, divorce decree or custody agreement. If the document does not clarify holiday rights, the two of you should agree informally, perhaps a year at a time. If you cannot agree, hire a divorce mediator. If you still can't agree, hire attorneys and go back to court.It is, obviously, cheaper and less disruptive to the family relationships if you can agree.

Can custody of a child be stated in a will?

If you live in the US... Children are not property and therefore cannot be 'willed'. You can state in your will who you would like to receive custody, but the court is not required to abide by it. For example, if Mom has custody of a child, she dies and her will states that she wants her sister to receive custody, but Dad wants custody...Dad gets custody, unless he can be proved unfit, because Dad has first legal right to custody (Mom's wishes don't change that).
