Physical Custody refers to a child’s daily living arrangements.
There are many creative ways to manage a child’s living arrangements, taking into account the parents’ work schedules and the child’s needs.
These plans can range from basic visitation that might include alternating weekends, holidays, and vacations to alternating weeks, months or years.
You and your spouse would agree on a parenting plan that is as detailed or as flexible as fits your situation.
This plan would deal with all the issues that may arise in caring for your child, such as, which days of the week the child is with which parent, education, health, discipline, summer plans, extracurricular activities, religious upbringing, etc.
