How children benefit from joint-custody arrangements

If you live in Texas and are going through, or have recently gone through, a divorce, you may find yourself struggling to adjust to many areas of your new life. If you have spent your child’s entire life living in the same home as him or her, and this arrangement changes, you may find yourself grappling with how to adjust to your new joint-custody arrangement. At the Law Office of Brian Turner, we understand how difficult it can be to adapt to new living and custody arrangements, and we have helped many divorcing fathers maintain an active presence in lives of their children.

As difficult as it may be to adapt to your new lifestyle, know that Time reports that you may be helping your child achieve long-term success and fulfillment simply by having a joint-custody arrangement. Some people mistakenly believe that forcing children to shuffle between two homes is disruptive and detrimental to the child’s overall wellbeing, but research suggests that this is not, in fact, the case.

In fact, kids who spend time living in the homes of both parents fare better in many areas than children who live with only one parent after divorce. In one study, kids whose parents had shared-custody arrangements reported that they were less likely to experience problems sleeping. They were also less likely to report experiencing feelings of sadness or depression.

Children who lived with both parents at least part of the time were also less likely to report suffering from regular stomachaches or headaches, and they were also less likely to experience dizziness or anxiety. These are just some of the many ways in which your son or daughter can benefit from your joint-custody arrangement. More about child custody in Texas is available on our web page.
