Shared Parenting: Successfully sharing custody of children 50-50 in separated relationships

Almost half of all marriages in the UK now unfortunately end in divorce; combined with the many other romantic relationships that also end every day, this amounts to a significant number of failed relationships. Many of these splits will involve children for whom arrangements are subsequently put in place for their future upbringing. These arrangements may vary from family-to-family in terms of how much input each parent subsequently has in the lives of their offspring depending on numerous factors including how civil the parents manage to remain towards each other through the process of parting and the amicability of relationships between the parents in the aftermath.
