In Georgia, there are two types of custody: legal and physical custody.
-Physical custody: when physical custody is shared, this means that each parent has close to equal time with the child.
-Legal custody: when parents share legal custody, this means that both parents have a say when major decisions must be made for the children.
One parent will be designated as the primary custodial parent. This parent will make final decisions for the children, in the event that the parents disagree.
