many people says each state is different so if there is any mother or fathers from West Virginia that would help a lot but i would like to find out what rights i have and would i still have sole physical custody of my child if her father would sign her away or would i have full custody? i dont understand anything about this and my attorney was through the child support agency and i have tried to call and they said they have not recieved their paperwork yet so they dont know. if there is anyone that can help i would really appreciate it a lot. i am so confused right now i hope someone can help me understand my problem. Thanks to anyone that can.Answer Question

Even where courts do award sole physical custody, the parties often still share joint legal custody, and the noncustodial parent enjoys a generous visitation schedule. In that situation, the parents would make joint decisions about the child's upbringing, but one parent would be deemed the primary physical caretaker, while the other parent would have visitation rights.
