What is joint physical custody?

Joint physical custody is when both parents share the physical care and supervision of the child so that the child can spend frequent and quality time with both parents. This does not necessarily mean that the parents see the child for equal amounts of time. Joint physical custody in Alaska is when neither parent has the child for more than 70% of the child's time during a one year period.
