Shared Parenting sets forth arrangements and terms for the parenting of a minor child or children of parties who are either married or not married.  The term “shared” does not denote ownership as does the term custody.  Each parent shares in the legal rights and responsibilities for making major decisions that affect the child/children through a detailed Court Order signed by the parties and adopted by the Court, giving joint custody to both parties.  Children in shared parenting get a clear message that both parents love them and want them.   They have psychological permission to love and be with both parents. Studies find reduced levels of conflict in shared parenting families and that re-litigation (going back to court) is often cut in half.   Because both parties are committed in a shared parenting arrangement and the document is a court order, both parties are required to participate in parenting and following the parenting schedule.  In sole custody situations, the non-custodial parent has ‘visitation rights’ but no obligation to regularly commit to the agreed-upon schedule and often this creates one parent not being consistent with their parenting obligation, leaving the other parent ‘hanging’ when deciding not to show up and making the children feel unloved or abandoned when regular contact is not maintained.  Those who share parenting are less likely to “burn out”. Many co-parenting nonresidential parents continue to provide financial support; they have an active parenting role.  They do not feel like they have lost their children and they are not denied access.  The incidents where shared parenting does not work is in cases where there is regular high conflict between the parties and in cases where there are circumstances that can affect the child/children’s welfare, such as drug and alcohol addictions or anger management   issues   that   parents   must   overcome   to   be   an   appropriate   for   a   shared   parenting arrangement.
