Whether you’re a divorcing couple or an unmarried couple who’s separating, debates over child custody can seem endless and daunting. No one wants to consider losing time with their child, but for many couples, the best solution truly is to separate, leaving no choice but to share parenting time. So how can you come to an agreement that’s legally equitable and feels fair to both parties, as well as to your child?
