Legal Custody

Most parents who have been married to one another share the legal custody of their children as they are used to raising and sharing their children together. When parents have never been married, have never lived together, or where domestic violence is prevalent in the parents’ relationship, it may not be in the children’s best interest for their parents to share decision making. In that case, the primary residential parent will usually make the important decisions and report them to the other parent.
