What options are there for legal custody?

There are two types of legal custody: sole legal custody and joint legal custody.

If you have sole legal custody, you alone have the right to make all of the decisions affecting your child’s life.

If you have joint legal custody, you share the right to make decisions about your child’s life with the child’s other parent.  To read about when a judge will award joint legal custody, go to When will a judge order joint legal custody?
