What is 50/50 Custody?

Latest News

Divorces can be messy and stressful, even more so when children are involved in the marriage. It can be hard enough to split your entire financial life from your spouse and to divide your assets, but what about your child? Protecting your rights as a parent will undoubtedly be your top concern, and rest assured — it will be ours, too.

50/50 Custody is the splitting of time with the child between both parents equally, where one parent does not get extra time spent with the child over the other. This is often the most sought-after solution when both parents are willing and capable, as it assures the child will get ample time with both parents.

How is Custody Decided?

One of your questions may be — how is my time with my child decided by the court? Many variables come into play when determining custody, such as the developmental stage and level of the child, the financial readiness to care for a child and the mental capacity necessary to do so, which parent the child prefers (generally for older children), and what is in the best interest of the child.

In some situations, custody can be decided upon amicably by the parents. Other factors will be considered in instances where this is not capable, such as living arrangements, total income, and relationship with the child. We will help you navigate this difficult road with your and your child’s best interest at heart.
