Creating a co-parenting plan is best for your family

Family courts are encouraging both parents to be involved in the children’s lives after a divorce. In fact, the legislature is considering changes to the way child custody is determined in Michigan. Instead of assuming that the mother is the primary caregiver, judges would have to start a case by assuming both parents would have joint custody rights. Research shows that children who have both parents involved do better in school, have higher self-esteem and are more emotionally stable. 

Michigan preparing for potential change to child custody laws

Changes could be coming soon to the way that child custody cases are handled in Michigan. New legislation is going to be considered, making it mandatory for judges to start their cases with the assumption that both parents will be given joint custody rights. This means time with the children and obligations would be split.
