What does "custody" of a child mean?
Legal custody of a child deals with who has legal authority over a child. For example, joint custody means that two parents both have decision-making authority over a child together. Joint custody does not define the schedule of time with the child. The schedule (and the residence) of the child is usually referred to as "residential" or "physical" custody, and can be whatever arrangement fits the best interest of that child.
