In Michigan there are two types of child custody.

Physical Custody-when the parents have the child in their residence and are soley responsible for the day to day decisions for the child.

Legal Custody-when the parents have the right to decide on the MAJOR life decisions of the child (ex. Medical emergencies and education)

These can be granted as Joint or Sole.

This is were legal representation is important because once there is a Custody Order in effect, to change this a party must show a change in circumstances by clear and convincing evidence. (Which is a higher standard than preproderance of evidence)

If you have any questions or concerns contact an attorney.
