Rochester Child Custody Attorney on the Differences Between Legal and Residential Custody

Many people ask me as an experienced Rochester Child Custody Attorney, about the difference between the concepts of legal custody and residential custody.

  • Legal custody determines who is responsible for making important legal decisions such as where the child goes to school, and the religion in which the child is raised.
  • Residential custody dictates where the child will live, and designates the parent with whom the child lives as the primary residential parent.
