Physical Custody

Im in the military. On my divorce decree it states joint legal custody and, block checked off mother(me) has physical custody w/reasonable visitation, see remarks...which remarks says 51%mother & 49% father. Does this mean I dont have physical custody? i know the decree conflicts with what it says. And what are my rights? Also, I am due to leave april 2006, can I legally take my daughter?...my ex says he wont let me.

Too hard to say the meaning of the document without seeing it or knowing the context it was written in. Sounds like they have given you primary physical custody (51%) and father pretty close to the same amount. You really need to go to the courhouse that issued in the divorce decree. If the court clerks can't tell you, you will need to get in front of a judge for clarification of the decree. Let them know you are planning on moving next year and find out if the decree allows you to do this.
