Custody disputes often play a part in divorce proceedings. Even though the marriage is ending, a couple may have children to raise and want to remain active parents and do what is in the best interest of the child. Joint custody is a popular choice for many parents and allows them equal opportunity to spend time with their children. The alternative is an arrangement where one parent has primary custody while the other retains rights of parenting time and is able to maintain a presence in the child’s life.
