Shared custody can be healthy custody arrangement for your child

Checking in on the health and well-being of your child is a daily, if not an hourly, activity of a good parent. So when parents decide it's time for their marriage to end and for parents to lead separate lives while still parenting their child, what is the best option? That question isn't easily answered as it varies from family to family. However, a shared custody arrangement can be a great option for families who are looking to equally (or fairly equally) care for their child from separate households.

Custody arrangements are tailored to the Cranberry Township family that is affects. That is why it is important to consider the important points that affect you and your family when determining what custody arrangement is going to be right for your family. The best interests of the child is the factor considered above all when a family law court makes it's decision about a child custody situation. Shared custody can consist of shared legal custody, physical custody or both.

While a parents' romantic relationship with each other might be ending, their role of parent is forever. That's why a shared custody situation is so appealing to many Cranberry Township families as it can allow the least disruption for a child in the middle of a divorce. Allowing a child fairly equal access to both parents can set a great example for the child and create a less stressful home environment. When parents agree on a parenting plan, it makes a divorce or child custody determination that much easier.

The reality is that some parents end up in a custody battle when they do not see eye to eye on how the child custody arrangement should play out. No shame to them, the conflict may be very necessary. However for parents who are on the same page, shared custody can be a great solution. A parenting plan can help to outline details that can outline specific duties and responsibilities of each parent.
