I think, joint custody means that the two of share share the rights and responsibilities of parenting your child(ren) without the interference of the courts. No child support, no court-scheduled visitation, etc. Its also called "shared parenting" in some states like mine (ohio).

((((Hugs)))) for you.

No joint custody means you meet in the middle and make decisions about your kids. One still gets child support. Joint custody is what we have and he still pays child support... I wish I would have went sole custody.

The responsibilities are not really that hard... Just think of it as sharing football games, soccer nights and stuff like that. I am active duty and he gets them every other weekend and when I work nights

Joint just means you both have custody with or with out child support.

Me and my ex have joint. We actually went to court and told them we want this and that and they just wrote something up for us.

John & I came up with our scedule. It works great for us... John works a 8-5 job & I work a evening job.. so we came up with I get them days and he gets them nights. and we alternate weekends. Course when they are in school we will have to redue or arrargment. But were we both have them pretty 50/50 neither of us choose to do child support because we both do our fair share of supporting them. ..

Basically, both parents have the same rights when it comes to the children. This is great for the kids. The hard part is if both parents don't see eye to eye on most things. He could fight you on what school they go to, etc. But, if you basically think that you can agree and be civil for the kids sake.......it's a great way to go.

I have joint custody with ex, with me having sole custody. We share all responsibilities in his care, but I have him most of the time with ex taking him every other weekend and Thursday nights. He pays child support.
