What are the advantages of joint custody?
Statistically, children with parents who share custody are able to spend more time with each parent than those without joint custody. Studies show that about half of all children whose parents share custody see both parents at least once a week, while only 10% of children with a primary custody parent see their non-custodial parent as often. Children also have time to spend with a parent without making an arrangement for a particular day. Finally, for children with joint custody parents, the sense of loss is lessened when one parent moves out after a divorce, which can have a significant effect on a child’s development.
