    Living Situation Not As Influential As Time Spent With Parent
    WASHINGTON - Children from divorced families who either live with both parents at different times or spend certain amounts of time with each parent are better adjusted in most cases than children who live and interact with just one parent, according to new research on custody arrangements and children's adjustment.

    Parenting Time & Shared Residential
    Custody: Ten Common Myths
    by Dr. Linda Nielsen
    What is the best parenting plan for most children of divorce?
    Should infants and toddlers spend overnight time with their
    nonresidential parent? If not, why not? If so, how much time?
    Is shared residential custody better for children than living with
    one parent and varying amounts of time living with their other
    parent – mainly on weekends? Isn’t shared residential custody
    only successful for a small group of well educated, higher income
    parents who have very cooperative, conflict free relationships –
    and who mutually agree to share without mediation, litigation
    or lawyers’ negotiations? Since most married mothers do 80%
    of the childcare, after a divorce shouldn’t the children live that
    same proportion of time with her?

    Once you find your legislator, it is good to contact them by phone, email, or letter. Recently, legislators have told us that they are getting so many emails, that it might be better to contact by phone or letter. If you do an email contact, follow up by phone to see if your email was received. It will take more than one contact to get your voice heard.
    Always be courteous, even if a legislator does not agree with you. Many times it's a good idea to ask for help or ask for more information. This is nonthreatening to the legislator, and allows you to eventually get around to asking them to do something for you.

    in sponsoring HF322, a billshared parenting and bills that supportssupport 50/50 parenting,
    As you probably know, Minnesota has a family law system that supports a very contentious divorce and separation process. Frequently parents spend thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in lawyers fees, to determine which parent will be the custodial parent.
    The winner of this battle will gain the custody of the children for nearly 80 percent of the time. The loser will be allowed two weekends and two weekday evenings each month, to be with his or her children. There are also frequently bitter and expensive disputes about how the children will be financially supported following divorce or separation.
