To my knowledge it does mean that it is joint custody. That is if you have a parenting plan that says decision making is made by both parties, if only one parent has decision making then it would be considered sole custody, with the other parent having visitation only.

It's extremely ambiguous/vague. "Primary" implies the existence of some other custodial right (secondary). "Supervised visitation" indicaves no custody rights and only the right to visit the child. Motion to clarify is the only way to straigten out the controversy.

Rendering an opinion as to the legal meaning of a court order is the use of professional legal judgment reserved for licensed attorneys. Whether you offer such opinions is entirely up to you, however, I cannot permit you to do so without violating the rules of professional conduct, for which I may be disciplined.

So, feel free to offer your personal experience if it is reasonably related to the poster's questions -- just don't analyze their posts and attempt to come to a legal conclusion, or I'll have to delete your comments.

Thanks for your cooperation.
