There are two different types of child custody:
- Legal custody refers to the right and responsibility to make decisions for your child such as schooling, religion and medical decisions. Generally, in North Carolina parents will have joint legal custody; however, there are certain exceptions.
- Physical custody refers to where the child will live and the time each parent spends with the child in terms of overnights. In certain cases, one parent will have primary physical custody and the other parent will have secondary physical custody, and in others they will have joint physical custody. As you navigate the child custody process, you will be required to go through a free mediation process offered by the State of North Carolina.
