THURMAN'S INSIDER'S CUSTODY TIPS:

What is "Joint Physical Custody?"

Never agree to anything less than "joint physical custody" but realize that "joint" does not mean "equal." Almost any kind of joint parenting arrangements will qualify as joint custody. In terms of percentages, it is not uncommon for courts to assign joint custody labels even if the parent's respective timeshares are 90%/10%, or some other fraction. Actual timeshare matters most, although joint custody labels can nonetheless themselves affect the posture of your case.
