What is The Difference Between Sole Custody and Joint Custody?

There are two types of custody. Ther's legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody refers to decision making for the children, in a situation where there's sole legal custody, the judge grants the right to one parent to make all of the decisions for the child and the other parent really doesn't have any say. When it comes to physical custody, a parent might be granted sole physical custody or joint physical custody. It doesn't make as much difference in the physical custody situation. One can have sole physical custody and the other parent could still have as much parenting time as a part of a party with joint physical custody. Physical custody is something that you really need to talk about the specifics of your case with an attorney.
