More time with both parents = best for children

According to a new study recently published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, children of divorced or separated parents may benefit from spending more time with both parents rather than spending the majority of time with only one parent with infrequent visits with the other parent. 

While shared custodial arrangements are not the norm for separated or divorced parents in much of the United States in general or Maryland in particular, much of the recent research favors shared custodial arrangements. When determining what custodial access schedule is best for your children, you should consider the benefits that they are likely to experience by spending more time with both of their parents.
