Child custody disputes are uniquely stressful affairs. If parents agree on what is best for their children, then child custody matters may proceed in a relatively straightforward manner. However, if parents are compelled to dispute where their children should live, how parenting time should be allocated and how their children should be raised, the process can become quite emotionally and physically draining.
Numerous studies have confirmed in recent years that when parents opt to divorce, they often do their children more good than harm in the long-run. This conclusion is born out of the fact that parents often provide happier, healthier and more stable homes for their children when they are not constantly fighting or navigating the tensions of an unhappy and unhealthy marriage.
