Legal custody in Placer County and throughout California consists of the right to make decisions affecting your children. For example, a parent with legal custody should have a say in their children’s education, religious upbringing, medical care, and extracurricular activities. Parents can share legal custody, or a judge might assign it to only one parent. Shared legal custody is more common, however, and disputes can break out between parents who both get a say in critical issues, such as whether a child should attend private school or receive certain medical treatment (such as vaccination).
