Child custody

Neither type of custody arrangement, joint or sole, results in the avoidance of a child support obligation. The primary distinction between these commonly used terms is control of decision making.

Good luck.

My wife after 9 months is going to give me custody of both our children. I need to know what is joint and sole? Does solo mean that she gets no visitation. Or can she have visits? The reason is she doesn’t want to pay me child support to support her children.
