THEY DO NOT. It is rare for a parent to lose both physical and legal rights. There have to be some very persuasive factors at work here. This means the court found that the parent who lost legal rights is likely very unfit as a parent. Legal custody means that the parent has the power to make major decisions regarding the child’s welfare, including educational, medical and religious. Connecticut courts generally award joint legal custody, meaning both parents share this decision-making power. If that has not happened here, there must be a substantial reason for it.
