Shared parental responsibility is typically ordered by judges, and requires both parents to consult with each other regarding all major decisions regarding their children. For example, medical decisions, educational decisions, etc.
However, in some cases, sole parental responsibility can be ordered if shared parental responsibility would be detrimental to a child.
One example of shared parental responsibility being detrimental to a child would be if there is domestic violence. For instance, if there is a parent or a child who believes that they are in imminent danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence, or have been a victim of domestic violence in the past.
