Who gets custody? Shared Parenting continues to attract attention nationally

February 10, 2022

The Washington Post Magazine recently featured a story spotlighting 50/50 shared parenting in custody cases. This topic continues to garner attention on both the state and national levels. The Family Law Department here at Mandelbaum Barrett is well-versed in this arena, having just published an analysis on the issue in the New Jersey Law Journal. Read that article here. At present, there is no presumption or automatic consideration of 50/50 shared parenting time in the State of New Jersey. Two bills, however, remain pending with the legislature on these issues. Bills have been proposed in 39 of 50 states requiring that judges either consider shared custody or abide by a presumption of shared custody. Modern attitudes towards working parents and dual working-parent households, as well as psychological studies, appear to be fueling trends.
