Child custody is the term for custodial determinations or awards involving a minor child. There are various types of child custody, but generally speaking, the parent (or other third party) that is awarded child custody is the one who makes important decisions in the child’s life, such as religion, medical issues, education, discipline, and much more. Additionally, the child usually lives with the person who has custody over them. Of course, since there are so many variations of child custody, the child may not necessarily live in only one place or with only one parent/relative.
