Orange County residents are very familiar with stories of children being caught in the middle of the divorce process when their parents decide to part ways. As divorce continues to affect spouses, not just in California, but all across the country, more and more parents are now dealing with child custody issues. Such cases can be settled using joint custody, which allows both parents to become custodial parents, working hand in hand for the sake of their children.
Although the thought of becoming partners for the sake of the children may not be the strongest concern of divorcing spouses, it is important to understand that parents will stay connected with their soon-to-be ex-spouse because of their children. Being co-parents can be difficult for the parents at first but the children will benefit if both parents are present throughout their growing years.
