In this article, we looked at the basics of legal custody, some examples on how legal custody works, and rights, privileges, and obligations that come with legal custody. Now, you should have a better understanding of some of the issues involved with legal custody.

Further, legal custody is intended to be a form of permanent custody. Like actual permanent custody, legal custody brings with it the great responsibility of caring for the child until the age of majority. Unlike permanent custody, the natural parents retain residual rights, privileges, and obligations that allow them to remain a part of their child’s life, and that force them to support the person who has been designated and the child’s legal custodian.
