What Is Sole Primary Custody?
Today’s question comes from Mickey. He wants to know, “What is sole primary custody?”
Before I get started with answering Mickey’s question, I must first explain that there are two types of custody in Nevada. There is legal custody and then there is physical custody.
In legal custody, you either have sole legal or joint legal.
-It is determined by giving the parties the right to make decisions about their children’s education, about their children’s medical, about their children’s religious upbringing, such legal issues as that.
The physical custody then includes either joint physical, primary physical, or sole physical.
-The primary physical is where one party has most of the time with the children and the other party then has visitations, such as school breaks or holidays.
-Joint physical custody, allows the parties to share the time with their children equally. The parties will decide what is the best schedule for them but they will have the children an equal amount of times.
– And the last type of custody is sole physical. This is where one parent has the entire time with the children. The children live with the parent and the other parent then has visitation at the discretion of the parent that has sole physical custody.
Those are the distinctions. There is no such thing as sole primary custody together. There’s no such thing as sole or primary legal custody. A lot of people get these confused. I hope that this has helped to clarify this, Mickey. If you have questions about this and wanna talk about this further, please go to vegasdivorcemeeting.com.
