What is shared parenting? It is simple, really. “Shared parenting,” as the name suggest, is a simple legal presumption that there will be joint physical and joint legal custody after divorce, or in the case of out-of-wedlock children, after the break-up. “Joint physical” means roughly equal—as much as practicable. It is just that—a presumption. It could be rebutted by evidence that a parent is unfit or any other evidence under the sun that would suggest that joint physical and joint legal custody is unworkable or impracticable. Shared parenting does NOT mean that custody arrangements would be automatic, or that case-by-case determinations would end, or that violent people would still get custody of their children. In fact, that could be written right into the legislation to assuage any fears (not that it really needed to be, because it is inherent in the nature of the legislation).
