This entrusts the legal and physical custody of the child in only one of the parents. The parent granted Sole Custody makes all major decisions for the child without having to consult the non-custodial parent. Sole Custody is generally used in cases where the parties are unable to cooperate in making decisions for the child or in those cases where one parent is absent from the child's life.
