Buffalo Child Custody Lawyer on the Differences Between Legal and Residential Custody

As a Buffalo Child Custody Lawyer, clients will ask for clarification of the distinctions between legal custody and residential custody.

  • Legal custody designates who makes the important decisions in the child’s life, whether one parent has sole legal custody or both parents share joint legal custody.
  • Residential custody refers to a primary residential parent with whom that child lives and, in some instances, this can be shared equally.
  • When the parties can work together, they will share joint legal custody and both will make decisions about important aspects of a child’s life.
