Divorce does not have to mean losing custody of your children. An experienced family law attorney can help you negotiate a plan that gives each parent a roughly equal amount of parenting time and responsibility so the children can benefit from a relationship with both parents. Shared parenting time means that the parents have joint physical custody of their children and shared parenting responsibility means that both parents can participate in making important decisions on behalf of their kids.
