What does it mean to have sole legal and physical custody?

Q: my lawyer says its a good think the judge gave me sole custody but what does it mean in a day to day life. my ex has lots of visitation with our daughters and will be around nearly every day. what is the point of sole custody if he has tons of daily access?

A: David's Answer: Sole v. joint custody doesn't necessarily speak to access time. It more relates to decision-making - sole custody generally means the custodial parent gets sole decision-making on issues regarding the child, while joint custody generally means the parties share decision-making. Schedule a consult with a NYC Child Custody attorney for more info.
