Joint legal custody,is where both parents share the right to make long-term decisions about the raising of a child and key aspects of the child's welfare, with physical custody awarded to one parent.
I would suggest a scenario where the parties shall act as co-guardians of the child as provided for in Sections 18(2)(c), 18(3), 18(4) and 18(5) of the Children's Act 35 of 2005 (as amended)(“Children’s Act”) and shall be co-holders of the parental responsibilities and rights of care and contact as referred to in Section 18(2)(a) and (b) of the Children's Act subject to the the fact that you shall be the parent of permanent primary residence and Defendant the parent of alternate residence, with visitation times etc. stipulated in the agreement, i.e every second weekend, holiday etc.
