Is child custody in divorce cases moving towards (or already at) a presumed 50/50 split?  That is one of the first questions that is frequently asked at an initial consultation with a divorce attorney.  The answer is complex, bringing in many factors.  It is true that the Courts seem to be leaning towards the children having as much contact with both parents as possible.  One of the factors to be considered, however, includes the ages of the children, whether they are very young or teenagers.  Another dynamic is the working responsibilities of the parents, such as frequency of business travel or shift work.  Further, since one of the factor in child custody is the best interest of the children, their individual personalities come in to play.  To find out more about whether 50/50 custody is the best answer in your divorce, call IANDOLI & EDENS now at 908 879 9499 for a free consultation with our divorce and custody experts.
