Physical custody is simply the timeshare parents have with the child or children.
Physical custody can either be “joint” or “sole”. Orange County courts generally presume that joint custody is in the best interest of the minor child.
Joint physical custody means that both parents share frequent and continuing contact with the children. A typical joint custody situation is, for example, one week with one parent and the next with the other.
Sole physical custody means one parent has received the primary timeshare with the child while the other has visitation. A typical visitation schedule is every other weekend and a weekday every week.
