Child Custody Details

In Massachusetts, child custody is comprised of two components: legal custody and physical custody. Let's explore the differences:

  • Legal custody: Legal custody determines which parent has the authority to make decisions regarding the child's health, education, religious upbringing, and overall development.

  • Physical custody: Physical Custody refers to the parenting time arrangement and determines how much time each parent spends with the child.
