With the current California health order to shelter-in-place, we are all trying to keep ourselves and our families safe while traveling down this uncharted path. This unexpected situation is difficult for all of us. We are separated from friends, family, and co-workers. Our everyday lives have been moved into our homes, where we are trying to live, work, and homeschool. In addition to the everyday struggles that we face while sheltering in place, separated parents who share custody of their children are faced with even more unanswered questions and daily dilemmas.
In a divorce, dividing assets can be easier than trying to determine child custody and visitation. More courts are moving towards shared parenting, or co-parenting, which is when both parents share custody and care of the child. You might stop being a husband or wife, but you will always be mom or dad, and so will the other parent.
