– from Doris A. in Milwaukee, WI
My husband and I went through a divorce. The court gave me legal custody over our daughter. In the court’s description of legal custody was a description of full physical custody. However, the judge never used the actual terms physical custody. My ex-husband wants to take our daughter for on a month long road trip during the summer. I told him he does not have the right to. He is threatening to sue, saying I’m violating his custody rights. Can the court combine legal and physical custody when giving a ruling?
