- Full Custody - As the name entails, “full custody” grants you complete control over your children's life.
- Physical Custody - The parent granted “physical custody” is the parent with whom the children live with.
- Joint/Shared Custody - “Joint or shared custody” is a shared form of custody where the arrangement allows both parents to be equal decision-makers in their children's lives.
