Types of Child Custody Arrangement
In Williamson County, parents can have one of two basic types of custody. Physical custody gives the parent the right to have the child living in his or her home, where day-to-day life is under that parent’s control. Legal custody gives the parent the right to make decisions about the child’s welfare, without actually having the child in the parents’ home. In most cases that do not involve abuse, both parents will have some measure of legal custody. Sometimes parents will have shared physical custody, where both have physical custody of the child during a portion of the year.
