Key responsibilities of custodial parents

After a divorce in Tennessee, one parent may be given primary physical custody of a child. This means that the child lives with this individual more than half of the time. Although custodial parents may have significant influence over how the child is raised, the noncustodial parent has rights as well. Custodial parents are expected to adhere to a visitation schedule as closely as possible. Visitation schedules may be determined by the parents themselves or by a judge.

Parental rights to a child after a divorce

After parents in Tennessee or other states get divorced, they may be able to retain custody or visitation rights to their children. The two types of custody are physical and legal custody. Children will typically spend most of their time living with the parent who has physical custody while legal custody gives a parent the ability to make decisions about the child's upbringing. These decisions may include how a child is educated or what religious beliefs a minor is exposed to.
