There is a popular belief that fathers never have custody of their children. This is due to the historical fact that mothers were in charge of the family’s well-being while fathers were the breadwinners. It was natural for the court to award custody to the mother because she was the one who was most responsible for their well-being at the time. It was in the child’s best interests to be with their mother. That is still the case: a judge will award custody to a parent if it is in the child’s best interests.
In today’s world, both parents are usually the primary breadwinners. However, most often than not, fathers are treated unfairly in custody disputes, and they get deprived of the right to be involved in their child’s life. There is still no equal right for both parents.
In order to get equal shared custody, the question you have to ask yourself is: ‘would it be in the best interests of your child for me to have 50% custody?’ If the answer is ‘No’, the court obviously won’t be in your favor. If the answer is ‘Yes’, there is a very good chance that you would get equal shared custody. You have to convince the court and prove that you are as capable as the mother of taking good care of your child. Here are six tips to increase your chances of getting equal shared parenting.
