A few words of warning

hl-admin Blog, Child custody and visitation, John Harding Leave a Comment

From our eNewsletter:

Shared parenting doesn’t work for children when:

  • There are very high levels of intractable conflict between the parents
  • The parents are more focused on getting their fair share of time than on the real interests of their children
  • It’s a regime imposed because the parents couldn’t come to an amicable arrangement, and they lack the goodwill to make it work
  • A parent has plenty of time technically with the children but is not really there for them
  • A parent’s inattention causes children to feel unsettled or like visitors
  • Children do not feel at home in both households
  • There is inflexibility about the arrangements over time
