The word "CUSTODY" has two separate meanings under the law.
1. LEGAL CUSTODY - means legal guardianship, that is, the right to sign report cards and other important papers and to make major decisions concerning the child. Courts usually prefer to have both parents retain joint legal custody where the parents are able to set aside their differences and work together for the best interests of the child. Where the parents cannot cooperate with each other, or where other circumstances, such as geography, make such cooperation impractical, then courts will award sole legal custody to one parent.more »
