A parent with legal custody has the right to make decisions regarding his/her child life. Things like healthcare and education can all be determined by that parent. Parents who share legal custody must cooperate in reaching a decision about the child’s future. A parent with legal custody making detrimental decisions for the child could have his/her custody revoked. The child custody page has more information.
