I have been a long standing advocate of the proposition that upon divorce, the law should provide for equal custody between parents unless one parent declines to exercise that custodial time. If this were the case, we’d see a lot less resources being expended on custody battles because one parent is attempting to keep the children away from the other, with no legitimate reason. I have written about this topic in the past, including an article that appeared in the June 29, 2012 Daily Journal. I am pleased to see that the concept is finally catching hold in various states which seek to enact laws providing for shared parenting upon separation or divorce. Just this past January 29, USA Today reported on this movement. I thought you might find it of interest. [USA Today Article]
