What is sole custody?


If you’re here, you might be considering divorce in New Jersey. You also might have children and might be concerned about a concept called sole legal custody. In New Jersey, there are two types of custody: physical and legal. Physical custody means where the kids are at any given point in time; where they put their heads at night and where they wake up in the morning.Sole CustodyLegal custody, however, is who has the right to make decisions with respect to the children. Most of those decisions are going to be major decisions regarding medical procedures, regarding how the upbringing of the children is going to impact them where they go to school, and that decision is more of a legal, as opposed to a custodial decision. Generally speaking in New Jersey, barring abuse and neglect, most parents will share legal custody.
