Custody is the care and keeping of anything or anyone, for example a child in a custody case. Child custody is a term that refers to rights and responsibilities for each parent and child. Custody is not a term used to indicate ownership, but rather a determination of the time a child is going to be with each parent and each parent’s responsibility to make decisions on behalf of the child.
If you would like to request a change of custody, you must file a motion.
