What types of child custody are there?

Custody is divided into 2 types: legal and physical. Legal custody is the decision making on behalf of the minor child. Physical custody is the daily caretaking for the child. Physical custody includes times when the child is in school, with friends or asleep, and the custodial parent remains responsible for the child during these times.
