Sharing Physical Custody of Your Children
Now that you and your partner have decided that it is in the best interest of the family for each of you to go your separate ways, some of the most important decisions you will now need to make will be in regards to your children. If it will be possible for you and your partner to maintain a civil relationship after your divorce is finalized, it may be a good idea to talk with each other about sharing physical custody of your child.
Reasons to Share Physical Custody of Children
Under the right circumstances, joint physical custody can be beneficial for children and their parents alike. By sharing physical custody of your child with your former partner, you will be able to ensure the following:
- That your child is able to maintain strong relationships with both parents
- That you and your partner will both have the opportunity to be a part of your child’s life
- That your child is able to maintain balance in his or her life
In any case, it will be important that you and your partner can agree on a custody agreement that will be in the best interest of your children; our legal team can help you explore which of your options will be best suited to your specific situation.
