Joint Custody and Coparenting.
Sell, Kenneth D.
Results are presented of an intensive search of U.S. newspapers and periodicals on the joint custody of children after divorce, where both parents have continued responsibility for parenting and where the children spend part of each week, month, or year with both of the parents. Areas of concern addressed by these materials include the following: (1) the discovery that numerous couples have independently practiced joint custody in the past 12 years; (2) advantages and disadvantages of joint custody; (3) experiences of parents; (4) merits of the research; (5) legal aspects of joint custody and its future practice; and (6) the minimal criteria for undertaking joint custody. A bibliography of nearly 150 items is included. (Author)
