Under Arkansas law, two types of custody exist. Legal custody refers to the authority that parents have over key matters that affect their children. This type of custody is usually awarded jointly so that each parent has a say in the legal, health, educational and spiritual concerns affecting their sons and daughters. Physical custody addresses where the child lives. Sole physical custody can be granted if the court believes that it is in the child’s best interests to live primarily in one parent’s home.
