Both of these types of custody could be awarded to one parent solely, both parents jointly, or to neither parent (i.e. a third-party). There are many gradations in between and the Court could grant shared physical custody but favor one parent over the other in terms of time with the child given to each parent. Cases involving custody to someone other than a parent (i.e. a third-party) can be very difficult and there is a presumption that a child’s welfare is best served in the custody of a parent rather than the custody of a third party. However, if a third party is seeking custody, that party must prove to the Court that both parents are unfit, or that extraordinary circumstances exist which would render parental custody detrimental to a child.
