Legally it can be defined as being responsible for the financial and physical, educational needs of children,until the age of majority. That age in most states is 18. Legal responsibility also includes criminal or civil disobedience incurred. For example if your sixteen year old has an auto accident (regardless if you gave them permission or not) you would be equally responsible for damages. Response to above: Unless of course you charge your child with theft. Parents can also be sued now in Canada to support their children in University if it is proved the young adult is making efforts to further their career, and not wasting time in school. This of course is a Canadian law, and will inevitably spread to the USA within time, as socialism always does. As far as responsiblity goes, men have 90% of the onus of resonsiblity.

If the parent with visitation rights has joint legal custody they have the right to participate in the decision to seek and schedule therapy for the child. A parent with sole legal custody has the right to arrange therapy for the child without the consent of the non-custodial parent. The custodial parent should inform the NC parent of the therapy and involve them if the NC parent is willing to help especially when the NC parent is taking a positive parental interest and role in the child's life. However, the parent with sole legal custody has the sole right to make decisions that involve the child.

That is to avoid a situation where one parent interferes with the needs of the child because they disagree with the custodial parent's decisions.
