Is 50/50 custody automatic in divorce or separation? This is assuming both parents are competent.
Except in cases of abuse or neglect, it seems to be the norm in today's culture. But it depends on the state where you live. And in my experience as the grandparent of two young children of divorce, it seems to be the best arrangement for the children. Most families do one week with one parent and one with the other. My daughter and her ex divide each week in half and alternate weekends. It seems to cause fewer adjustment issues for the children by not spending an extended period with one parent or the other. The children are 9 and 7 and having been doing this since they were 3 and 1. Daycare providers have mentioned they don't seem like children of divorce.
Yes, I would think so. In order to obtain Sole Custody you would have to prove that your ex partner poses some sort of threat to the child, is a drug addict, alcoholic, mentally unstable, child abuser, in jail, etc. Without any of these, joint custody is usually the norm. Visitation regulations (primary residence, sleepovers, supervised verses unsupervised etc), however, would depend on the childs age etc.
