WHAT IS SOLE LEGAL CUSTODY IN MICHIGAN?

Generally speaking there are two types of custody in Michigan, physical custody and legal custody.  Physical custody is the traditional type of custody most people think of when talking about custody, that is with whom does the child spend the majority of the time.  Legal custody refers to joint decision making for the child about important life decisions, such as where they attend school, medical care decisions, religious upbringing and other such important considerations.  It also grants equal access to the child's school, health and other records.  In addition, in cases where there is joint legal custody, neither party may move more than two hundred (200) miles from where they resided at the time of entry of the judgment of divorce without the approval of the other parent or the court.
