Co-Parenting, Custody And Visitation
Co-parenting is a term that is used in the courts to describe a parenting approach often taken after a divorce. A fair co-parenting plan involves sharing of holiday and school schedules, as well as schedules surrounding a child’s extracurricular activities. Today, in many families, both parents work. In such situations, and even in ones in which one parent does not work, it may be in the children’s best interests for both parents to share co-parenting responsibilities and to remain actively involved in their children’s lives. While this still may involve physical and legal custody determination, co-parenting embraces the idea of joint custody.
