Shared child custody advocates may impact Connecticut family laws

When most couples begin the process of divorce, if children are involved, the parents begin to look at shared parenting. This approach to child custody is gaining traction in many states across the country. Recently, a big push by parental advocate groups has led to more than 20 states, including Connecticut, to consider adopting bills that make shared parenting the default choice when a divorce becomes final.

The new bills being debated across the country would have judges start the separation process with a presumption in favor of equal parenting. This means that each parent spends the same or nearly equal amount of time with the child or children and that decisions made regarding said child or children are made together, by both parents. Many proponents of the pending bills say that children who are raised with both parents in the picture tend to adjust better and build better relationships with each parent.
