A continued look at today’s flexible custody outcomes, Part 2

On Behalf of | Mar 29, 2018 | Child Custody, Firm News

One divorce is centrally marked by a single home where the kids permanently reside, with mom and dad — who each have their own apartment — taking turns on alternate weeks living together with the children.

Another divorce keeps the family as the kids have always known it virtually intact. A recent in-depth report on modern custody outcomes notes a case where a divorced couple “continued living together but moved into separate bedrooms.”

Those are but two examples of what is seemingly an unlimited universe of custody-linked possibilities these days that can be explored by civil and flexible ex-partners who are strongly focused on their kids’ best interests.

“[A]nything goes,” notes the above article on a rejection of boilerplate custody outcomes, “as long as the children are happy.”

And what does make them most happy in nearly all cases, stresses empirical evidence on the subject, is a life marked by the strong continued presence of both parents following marital dissolution.

Happily, courts are on board with the concept. It is no longer the case that divorced dads spending far more time with the kids than in past decades is termed unusual. Increasingly, divorced couples have joint legal custody and a liberal open-door policy on parental-child interaction.

For obvious reasons, many parents find that empowering, knowing that their children will be psychologically healthier by having continually close contact with the people they love most.

Parenting plans focusing upon tailored and creative outcomes can be exciting to craft for parents who are unwaveringly focused on their children’s best interests. An experienced Arkansas family law attorney can closely help with the process.
