Shared Custody is defined as “shared legal or shared physical custody, or both, of a child in such a way as to assure the child of frequent and continuing contact with and physical access to both parents.” In many cases, parties who have children together recognize the need for each parent to remain involved in the children’s lives. Increasingly, the family courts are granting shared custody to separated or divorced parents who demonstrate their willingness to cooperate in their children’s best interests and share child-raising responsibilities. When it is in the best interest of the child, a Court will grant shared custody, particularly where it is more often the reality that both parents work outside of the home in our society.
