Custody after divorce: demographic and attitudinal patterns.

Author information

Center for Policy Research, Denver, Colo.


In a reanalysis of data from a large sample of divorced parents, joint residential custody--and joint legal custody to a lesser extent--was shown to be a favorable arrangement for couples who chose it and for their children. Parents with joint custody reported better cooperation with former spouses and greater financial resources than did those with sole custody. No association was found between children's adjustment and form of custody.
