New Jersey Child Custody Attorney Examines Having Sole Custody
As an experienced New Jersey Child Custody Attorney I am often asked about sole custody. If a party is considering getting a divorce in New Jersey and there’s children involved, one option is having sole custody. There’s two different types of sole custody: sole legal custody and sole physical custody. Sole legal custody revolves around the major decision-making. If a person has sole legal custody, that means that they are the only parent that gets to make those major decisions such as major medical decisions and major educational decisions. However, this is fairly rare because the other parent would have to be deemed unfit in order to have sole legal custody.
Sole physical custody involves where the child is living. If a party has sole physical custody, that means they have more than five overnights a week with the child. That would make that parent sole physical custodian.
