Question: Can both the parents be named custodial parent?
Answer: Yes. Many couples opt for joint custody (now called joint legal decision-making and parenting time.) Both parents then have the right to make decisions for the child. This arrangement is often handled through an agreement between the parents where they decide how to divide their respective time with the child on week days, weekends, and holidays. Arizona Revised Statutes, Section 25-408 discusses the custody issue. It is also possible to have joint legal decision-making, but with one parent being the primary residential parent.
