01/05/2007 - Divorce - State: AL #156
Parents live in different States and want to have joint custody of children and for the children to live with both parents at different times of the year. Is joint custody possible in this situation?
The answer depends on many factors, including the age of the children, when and for what period of times each parent will have the children living with them and other factors, including the Judge who will make the decision or approve the agreement. No clear answer exists as every case will be different. The ultimate decision will depend on what the Court determines to be in the best interest of the children, guided by prior cases and law addressing the issue.
