What is the difference between having full cusody and having primary custody?

Full custody is defined as one parent of a child having sole control over a minor child with the other having no custodial rights. Primary custody means that both parents share custody (also known as joint custody) but the primary custodian is the parent that the child spends most fo their time with/lives with on a regular basis. In other words, the parent that is not the primary custodian is the one that has the visitation rights.

Can joint custody be in different states?

A custody order can only be granted by one court usually in the state where the child presently resides. Judges are very reluctant to grant joint custody when the parents live in separate states. The usual procedure is for one parent to be granted primary physical custody and both parents sharing joint legal custody. The parent not having primary custody would be responsible for making his or her travel arrangements and living accomodations (or that of the child depending on the age) during visitation unless there is a different agreement made with the primary custodial parent.

What is the difference between primary physical custody and sole custody?

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. • 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.


Can you maintain custody of your children if you live with your boyfriend?

It depends on the details such as the character of your boyfriend and whether having him in residence creates a healthy environment for the children, whether their father objects, whether your relationship is long term or you're having short term boyfriends move in. Depending on the circumstances, if you find yourself in court trying to maintain your custody, that situation may not work in your favor.It depends on the details such as the character of your boyfriend and whether having him in residence creates a healthy environment for the children, whether their father objects, whether your relationship is long term or you're having short term boyfriends move in.

How does joint child custody affect child support in Alabama?

It depends on the type of joint custody. Custody is broken down into two subcategories- legal and physical. Legal custody is the ability to make decisions concerning the child and to act on the child's behalf. Physical custody is who the child lives with. Typically unless the child spends exactly 50 percent of the time with each parent, one parent is considered to have primary custody and the other parent to have secondary custody or visitation rights. Child support is based on who has primary physical custody, and that parent is typically awarded child support from the parent who has the child less since having the child more usually means that you provide for more of their needs as well.


Does non custodial parent have a say in the child's educational decisions?

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.

Can you get more child support by having primary physical custody?

If you have primary physical custody you are entitled to support. How much support is figured in a formula based on how much money each of you makes and how many days (or overnights) each of you has time with the child. Depending on the state, if the child stays with the other parent over a certain set amount of time, then that parent is responsible to pay less child support. Most states are trying to push joint physical custody where the child spends 1/2 to 2/3 of the time with the primary caretaker and the rest with the other parent.
