Child Support and Custody Issues are the Most Common Dispute in a Divorce (even more than money):
When going through a divorce, when you have children, both parents have a massive interest in ensuring the maximum time with their children. There is a common belief the courts favor the mothers when it comes to custody disputes. It is difficult to determine if this is in fact true because more mothers seek custody of the children than fathers do. So the higher rate of sole custody who are mothers can largely be attributed to who asked for custody in the first place. This is important to understand. Just because you are the mother, it doesn’t grant automatic sole custody status, and if you are the father, it doesn’t exclude you from seeking sole custody.
In cases where there is amicable efforts by both parties, a joint custody is common, this is also common in cases where both the mother and the father are competent parents and the court sees value in the children spending time with both parents. The court is primarily concerned with the well-being of the children when deciding custody arrangements, not the gender of the parties who make the request.
