What Is Legal Custody?

There’s a lot of different terms that are used with respect to custody. Some people use the term legal custody. What legal custody generally means is the parent has the right to make all decisions. It can also be known as sole custody, or some clients refer to it as full custody. Watch this video to learn more.

Legal custody refers to the right to make decisions that impact the child. Examples include selecting a school, choosing (or not choosing) a church, and determining medical care. If a parent has sole legal custody, he or she makes all of these decisions without having to consider the input of the other parent.
