What does “legal custody” mean?

  • By: Lorilee Desantis
  • Published: August 21, 2020

Legal custody refers to the right and responsibility to make decisions regarding the health, education, and welfare of the parties’ minor child. A court order for joint legal custody means that both parties have the right and responsibility for making these decisions; joint consent is not usually required unless the court specifies circumstances requiring joint consent. A court order for sole legal custody means that only one party has the right and responsibility for making these decisions.
