Which Parent is More Likely to Gain Child Custody During a Divorce?

According to the U.S Census, last year throughout the United States there were more than 13.4 million parents separated from the child’s other parent who were living with children under the age of 21.

In five out of six of those cases, the custodial parents are mothers.

At the YDC Lawyers, our child custody lawyers understand that not all households are defined by the traditional roles of mom and dad, which is why we support our clients’ wishes to determine the best shared parenting plans available for their children, so everyone can thrive after a separation or divorce takes place.
