Best Answer

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.
