Child Custody Basics

When parents separate or divorce, one of the earliest decisions they have to make is how they'll share time with their children. And for the kids, one of the hardest things about the divorce is the disruption to their daily routine. It's crucial that you figure out a schedule for the kids as soon as you can, and to do that you need some information about kids and divorce--things like what the different types of custody are, what judges consider when they make decisions about child custody, and how to share parenting responsibilities during and after a divorce.
