Physical Custody

  • James J Gross


Physical custody means having care and control of children on a daily basis. It involves all the daily short-term decisions, like homework, meals, and bedtimes, rather than the long-term decisions involved in legal custody. Physical custody is residential custody. It refers to where the child lives most of the time.
