There are two types of custody: legal and physical. The parent with legal custody has the right to choose which school the child attends. If both parents share legal custody then the decision cannot be made by one parent. Both must agree. That is why joint custody only works well when parents have a congenial relationship.There are two types of custody: legal and physical.
