Will joint custody work for you and your family?

Joint custody will often result in the children having two primary homes. Essentially, the children will live half the time with Parent A and half the time with Parent B. To some, this kind of arrangement might seem extreme and difficult to manage. Nevertheless, family and child psychologists have found that when the parents and children can successfully balance a relationship like this, the children benefit from spending as much time as possible with both parents.

Can you and your ex balance a 50-50 custody split?

Whether a 50-50 custody arrangement is right for you, your ex-spouse and your children will often depend on whether you can answer yes to the following questions:

  • Both parents are in favor of a 50-50 child custody arrangement.
  • The parents can cooperate with each other in order to reach mutual decisions on important subjects.
  • The parents live close enough to one another so that child custody exchanges are convenient.
  • Both parents are eager to be involved in the rearing of their children.
  • Neither parent has committed a parental abduction, domestic violence or child abuse.

Did you answer yes to the questions above?

Even if you didn't answer yes to all the questions above, if you and your ex-spouse are eager to work toward a 50-50 joint custody arrangement, this child custody plan could perhaps still work. Parents who agree to cooperate have the freedom to devise their own custody agreements that they then submit to the court for approval.
