Joint custody appears to be better for the child's health

There is a established connection between emotional stress and physical complaints known as psychosomatic illnesses. These ailments, which may take forms including loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating, feelings of dizziness, nausea and other complaints, are often experienced by New Jersey children whose parents have gone through a divorce. A recent study conducted in Sweden examined approximately 150,000 children in the 6th and 9th grades, seeking correlations between family status and psychosomatic illnesses.

Child custody issues in Illinois

During the divorce of two parents, tough decisions must be made with regard to parenting time, child custody and other matters. Indeed, it is never easy to make a decision that will result in spending less time with one's children, but in cases of joint custody parents have little choice. Compromises must be made, and it is always hoped that the decisions will be made with the best interest of the child in mind.

Child custody decisions are usually not either / or

Child custody decisions are seldom resolved in an either / or manner. To be sure, sometimes one parent will get sole custody, such as in serious domestic violence or substance abuse cases. But normally most custody cases result in some form of shared custody.
