Physical care determines where the child will live in the first place and which parent will take care of them daily. One parent receives «primary physical care,» the other secondary «physical care.» In all other cases, the parties shall be given equal physical custody and equal parenting time.

The second type of guardianship is legal guardianship. It concerns the right of parents to make decisions on behalf of the child. The parent can choose for the child his further education, the need for urgent medical care of religious life, and more. In most cases, the parties are guided by the right to choose. Only in emergencies do the parents transfer full legal custody.
