Joint Custody

Some people think that joint custody automatically equals that the parents spending the same amount of time with a child.  A joint physical-custody schedule should provide each parent with “significant periods of physical custody . . . in such a way so as to assure [their] child of frequent and continuing contact with both parents.”  See Miss. Code Ann. § 93-5-24(5)(c) (Rev. 2013).  But that does not necessarily mean that each parent would have to get equal time with their child.  See Collins v. Collins, 20 So. 3d 683, 692 (¶44) (Miss. Ct. App. 2008).
