Sole custody means that one parent has legal custody. Absolute custody isn't a commonly used term but it would mean that someone has permanent legal custody. It could refer to more than one person. For example, someone might say (informally) that grandparents have absolute custody if they have been awarded permanent legal guardianship by a court of law.

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.
