Does a visitation order and joint custody order mean the same thing

Q: Father has custody, but order says child lives w/ me and visits father every other weekend. Would the father be in violation of the visitation order if he does not return the child during the weekdays?

A: David's Answer: No - to be precise, joint custody addresses decision-making, while visitation addresses the access time each parent spends with the child. If the father is supposed to return the child according to the visitation order & is unjustifiably refusing to do so, file a violation petition. Call a Bronx Child Custody attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment. - David Bliven, Bronx Child Custody attorney (
