Co-parenting benefits adults and children after divorce

Shared custody that grants both parents time to raise their children after a divorce has the potential to produce many psychological and emotional benefits. Parents going through the process of divorce in Illinois will need to work out a custody agreement and co-parenting plan. Although coming to terms might be difficult for splitting spouses, the benefits to the family after the divorce are worth the effort.

Parenting after a divorce

Illinois couples who are going through divorces and who have minor children need to recognize that courts are changing how they view the roles of both parents. In the past, women were normally given primary custody of their children while the men were left with limited visitation. Now, however, courts are recognizing the importance of both parents and providing men with more time with their children.
