More states consider equal custody laws

Although a shared parenting bill was vetoed last year in Florida by Gov. Rick Scott, there is no doubt that times are changing when it comes to child custody. Many states are looking at the benefits of custody arrangements that move parents closer to a 50-50 time split.

One of the trickier aspects of divorce is child custody. There’s always hope that with a little give and take the couple can figure out a workable plan that benefits the child. That’s the key issue, after all – the best interests of the child. Both sides may have an array of wants, but the most important issue to consider is what the child needs.

Florida judge makes unusual ruling in divorce case

No matter how amicable a divorce may be, any children involved in a split may end up with some level of emotional distress from the situation. When parents choose to divorce, often their main concern is the well-being of their children.

For divorcing parents, one of the hardest things to do is to tell their children the marriage is over.

Because of children’s tendency to internalize these types of life-changing events, many parents worry about how to discuss the topic without causing further damage to their children.
