I have a mediation appointment this coming friday to talk about custody, he is asking for joint legal custody and joint physical custody. I want to understand what is the difference???
Response 8: Legal custody means both parents would have equal say on how the child is raised. For instance, the school the child goes to, the doctors the child sees. Physical custody means where the child resides.
physical custody is where my child live?
Response 9: Yes.
And what should i expect from this meeting?
Response 10: The mediaton may award both parties joint custody and one party sole physical custody or award one party sole legal and physical custody with generous visitation rights to the other party.
should I express here my concern about be threaten about don't getting his permission to go to visit my family?
Response 11: Yes, you should.
what we decided here, is the same in the case of the divorce? because actually this is the process for legal separation.
Response 12: The decision would carry over to the divorce case if the parties decide to dissolve the marriage.
another thing, what does it means "terminate (end) the courts ability to award support to Respondent (me)
Response 13: I am sorry, but I do not know in what context this question is being asked. So, I cannot answer it.
