    Default Legal Definition of "Custody"??? Missouri

    Missouri law states that the Court will hold a hearing and finalize the adoption after the adoptive family has had lawful custody of the child for at least six months. We were granted legal physical custody in January of this year, but were awarded temporary legal custody on Friday. Does the 6-month period begin from the date of physical custody, or from the date of temporary legal custody?
