Joint Legal Custody in New Jersey
Most people talking about joint custody are talking about physical custody. Most parents have joint legal custody. This indicates that neither party is seen as more of a parent and it provides the non-custodial parent to notice and consent to major decisions. A common cited example of such a major decision is cosmetic surgery for the child. The parent of primary residence still gets to make a number of day-to-day decisions for the child which has the ability to alienate that parent. A motion may be needed to define the exact rights and responsibilities of each parent.
