What is Shared Child Custody, And How Does it Work?

Shared child custody, also known as joint custody, allows both parents to have physical time with their children as well as a shared legal say in their children’s lives. Shared physical child custody works best if the children’s parents live close by and if the child gets along well with both parents. Shared legal custody works best if both parents are able to openly communicate and compromise with each other when it comes to making decisions regarding their kids. If you and your ex are thinking about shared physical custody or joint legal custody, or if you are not happy with your current child custody agreement, speak with a Seattle family law attorney today about your case.
