In South Dakota, what is the difference between a “custodial” parent and a “noncustodial” parent?

When a child lives primarily with one parent and has visitation with the other parent, the parent with whom the child primarily lives (called the “custodial” parent) has sole or primary physical custody, and the other parent (called the “noncustodial” parent) has the right to visitation or parenting time with the child.
