There are essentially three types of physical custody: primary, secondary, and joint.
Primary physical custody refers to the minor child(ren) physically resides with one parent and visits with the other parent who exercises secondary physical custody.
Secondary physical custody although the physical custody is split, secondary physical custody refers to having less time with the child compared to the parent with primary custody.
Joint physical custody is an equal sharing of time with the child(ren).
