Custodial parent has no meaning.

According to my lawyer.

He said that back in the day you had sole custody by either parent or joint custody, but the courts realized this made people be competitive, like if you had sole custody you had won. So now they have parenting plans and visitation schedules and that is what we go by and terms like custodial parent have little legal meaning.

News to me. I was asking for sole custody.

I don't know about that. My papers state that I have the final say in all decisions regarding our daughter.

Right, but apparently it doesn't legally mean much.

Quoting .PinkHart.: Idk, all my papers say I am custodial parent and he is non custodial.

It means something here.  It means his penis is in her purse until the kid turns 18 and off child support.

Here they call it conservatorship. Ex dh and I have joint managerial conservatorship (we both are to be consulted on any major decisions that affect the kids) but I am listed as the custodial parent and they live with me and he gets visitation. He is listed as NON-custodial parent. On legal documents. So yes, it has "legal" meaning.

Well if he didn't want his penis in her purse he should have kept his penis out of her vag.

Here it means something too.  The non-custodial parent basically has no rights or say in how the kid is raised.

It does here. He doesn't have the same rights I do.
