Definition - What does Non-Custodial Parent mean?

A non-custodial parent is the parent who does not have legal custody of the child or children from a former relationship. This applies to both single and married parents and is used to signify which parent has rights of guardianship.

Justipedia explains Non-Custodial Parent

The non-custodial parent is the parent who does not have full-time physical custody or legal custody of the child or children from a relationship. This type of custody is used to limit the rights and responsibilities of each parent by making each paren'ts custody categorically different from that of the child's other parent.
