In joint physical custody arrangements, children generally will live with one parent and be granted substantial visitation time with the other parent. This means that both parents will be able to play a role in actively raising their child or children. The parent that is with the child at any given time is the one solely responsible for the child’s day-to-day care and decision making. By law, they have the right and obligation to care for and raise the child without interference by the other parent.
