They are two terms used interchangeably that essentially mean the same thing.

Primary physical custody refers to the parent with whom the child resides with the majority of the time but, joint custody has been granted.

Sometimes a parent may have primary physical custody but the other parent may have legal custody, meaning one parent shall have the right and the responsibility to make the decisions relating to the health, education, and welfare of a child." This parent can make all decisions without seeking in put from the other 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 a mother be charged with parental kidnapping if she takes her child out of state and she was never married to the father?

Yes, if:- The father retains sole physical custody of the child, the mother has visitation rights and took the child out-of-state during a time she did NOT have visitation with the child; OR- The father retains sole physical custody of the child, the mother has absolutely no parental rights to the child and took the child out-of-state at any time.No, if:- There is a custody arrangement in place, whether as a written or oral agreement between the her and the father, or as an Order for Child Custody, and the mother retains primary or joint (equally shared) physical custody of the child; OR- There is no custody arrangement in place between her and the father, and there is no Order for Child Custody in place, but she retains primary or sole physical custody of the child and/or the father never bothered to petition for custody; OR- There is a custody agreement in place between her and the father, or there is an Order for Child Custody, and the father retains primary or sole physical custody of the child, IF the mother has visitation rights and chose to take the child out-of-state while she had visitation with the child;- Just about any other scenario, other than the two described above under "yes," not otherwise described here.To sum this up, no, the mother probably cannot be charged with parental kidnapping simply for taking her child out of state. The mother has a legal right to travel wherever she chooses with her child unless a court tells her otherwise. In fact, the mother may move out-of-state with the child permanently if she so chooses, and there is nothing the father can do.The fact that the mother and the father were never married is completely irrelevant. The only difference between unmarried parents and divorced parents, is that divorced parents usually submit a custody plan to (or, more often, one parent receives an Order for Primary Physical Custody from) the family court, which explicitly outlines which parent has custody and which has visitation. If the parents never married, and the child lives with the mother, she is the custodial parent (which means she has primary physical custody of the child) and she can take the child wherever she pleases, whenever she wishes. The father has no legal claim to or right to control how the mother cares for the child while she retains custody, and the mother is certainly not required to seek permission or even notify the father of her intent to leave the state with her child so long as she retains custody,
