There are two kinds of custody, namely physical custody and legal custody.
Physical custody refers to where a child will primarily reside. Generally speaking, the courts will award one of the parties primary physical custody. In some instances, the court awards joint physical custody, depending on the age of the child, where both parties reside, the school the child attends and other factors.
Legal custody generally refers to decisions regarding health, education, or religion. Legal custody is usually shared equally.
In cases where the parties agree on the physical and legal custody of the children, the court will generally comply with the wishes of the parties involved.
However, in cases where there is a dispute over child custody, the court requires that the parties meet with a conciliation counselor to resolve the disputed issues. If they cannot resolve the issues, they will appear before the judge who may require an independent child evaluation.
