Custody issues and single parents

Years ago the courts automatically seemed to give full custody to mothers and visitation to fathers when it came to custody. The tide has turned though and many parents find themselves sharing custody. This can mean many things such as living arrangements, rights to decisions and child support. Studies seem to support co parenting as a healthy way to raise children including shared time and responsibilities.

    I imagine that although this sounds difficult, the child will appreciate the efforts in the end.

      I can't imagine going through custody battles but it's nice to know the studies are showing co parenting beneficial and healthy.

        This sound difficult ... but I think the courts are trying to do what is best for the children
