A recent study published by the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health (JECH) found that children of divorced parents do better when they spend time living with both parents. Time Magazine reported on the study, which broaches the heated issue of which type of custody arrangement is best.

 Supporting Statistics

According to the article, the results from the JECH study go against the current consensus that children who experience shared-custody family arrangements are exposed to more stress due to the constant moving. The JECH investigated national data of almost 150,000 sixth and ninth graders and studied various psychosomatic health factors. These included sleep issues, loss of appetite, headaches and stomach aches, feelings of tension, difficulty concentrating, dizziness and sadness, among others. The majority of the children lived in nuclear families (69%), while less than a quarter lived in joint-custody homes (19%) and the remainder (13%) lived in single-parent homes. While children in nuclear homes reported the least amount of issues, children living in joint-custody homes reported significantly fewer problems than their counterparts living in single-parent homes. The study also found that joint-custody homes tend to expose the child or children to more resources – whether financial, emotional, social or otherwise – then other family settings.

Child-Custody in New York

Child custody varies depending on the state, however, generally the following factors apply when determining this issue during a divorce proceeding under New York state law:

  • Parents have a superior right to custody over nonparents: under New York law, extraordinary circumstances must be shown in order for a nonparent to obtain custody of a child.
  • Physical custody differs from legal custody: despite no statutory distinction, it is important to understand the difference – physical custody is where the child resides, while legal custody refers to which parent has the authority to make decisions on behalf of the child.
  • Types of custody: joint custody grants both parents equal decision making authority; temporary (pendente lite) custody is granted while the case is pending.
  • Best interest of the child: custody cases are very fact intensive and sensitive and, therefore, each case is decided on its own merits; the list of factors considered by the court when determining custody awards includes, but is not limited to:
    • The age, disability and physical health of the parents;
    • Whether domestic violence exists;
    • If existing informal or written custody arrangements exist;
    • Parents’ finances; and
    • Any findings of child neglect/abuse.

My husband has been frequently deleting all messages for the last couple of days from his phone and he didn’t know i was peeping at him, then i asked him why he was deleting all messages from his phone but he claimed that his phone memory was full and needed more space. Immediately I went in search of a hacker who can get me deleted information and contents from my husband’s phone and luckily for me i came across this reputable ethical hacker Mr GARRY HACK, this hacker got the job done for me and provided me with results and i saw that my husband has been lying to me. He was simply deleting all pictures, call logs, chats and text messages between him and his secret lover so i wont get to see what he has been doing at my back. Thank God for reputable hackers who are ready to help. I must say am really impressed with the services i got from The hacker Detective and am here to say a very big thank you: contact him on Email [email protected] or whatsapp: +1 928 534 9618 website: https://wzardgarryspeedhac.wixsite.com/my-site-1

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Michael. Well, his email is [email protected] and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him

Fixing my credit with the help of KENSTAR CYBER SERVICES was the fastest and easiest. I thought of him being a scammer, but he proved me wrong by improving on my credit profile. He did a CHEX system fix, increased my credit score and cleared all outstanding debt worth $72000 from profile. All I did was to inbox him through his personal email I got from other good reviews about his service ( [email protected] ). He replied and took care of all my credit issues in less than 2 weeks. Thanks to him….

KENSTAR Credit Service is truly outstanding. I have been trying for weeks to do a Chex system fix and get rid of 2 bad accounts on my credit report.

I recommend Kenstar Cyber Services to anyone with credit issues. After series of debts on my credit card ($22000) and a low credit score of 521, I was not able to apply for a fresh loan. Then I contacted KENSTAR via KENSTARCYBERSER[email protected] which I gave him all my details. He took care of my credit profile (increasing my score and cleared all debts record on my credit card) within seven (7) working days, special appreciation to his great service. CHEERS!!!

At the point I urgently needed a dental procedure that needed to be done for $2500 it was impossible to get approved for a big enough limit credit card to cover the cost of the dental procedure because of my outstanding debts, derogation marks inquiries and collections. Raylink came through for me by removing all derogatory marks, inquiries and collections, and this month I successfully completed the dental procedure having gotten approved of a high limit credit card. Thank you, God’s sent. Raylink’s email: [email protected]

Being able to handle people’s problems efficiently and effectively is a thing worth gratitude in every ramification. What XAP CREDIT SOLUTION did for me and my family is immeasurable, I had a very poor FICO of 510, I had a repo, student loans, evictions and a couple of late payments. After my niece convinced me I contacted XAP and they boosted my FICO to 790 and removed all evictions, late payments and repo. I know how unbelievable this may sound but they actually gave me a reason to be happy again. If you would like to engage with their services Text (801) 988 9890 or Email XAPCREDITSOLUTION at GMAIL dot COM. They are the best and surest means of getting your credit fixed. Tell them Eric told you so.

Did read your fabulous content. I do have a few queries to ask you. I am actually worried about how to solve a few issues: Is my partner neglecting you? Is this person lying and manipulating? Is my spouse taking advantage of me? Am I dealing with someone who never acknowledges their wrongs? I do have dark thinking? https://blog.spouseware.net/what-are-the-signs-of-a-toxic-relationship/ https://blog.spouseware.net/page/4/
