Rotating Custody of the Children

Not a good idea in my mind for very ptactical reasons which get mentioned in Florida Divorce Blog's Rotating Physical Custody or Equal Timesharing: Good for Noncustodial Parent. What About Kids?. The post goes onto something more disturbing:

"Many therapists consider this type of arrangement to be hard on kids, although perhaps “fair” to the non-custodial parent.

Historically, courts have not favored such arrangements.

But that may be starting to change under newer statutory schemes that strive to be more fair to both parents."
Luckily, Indiana does not favor either parent by law. Indiana law does its best to protect the child's best interests. If a custody arrangement burdens the child more than the parents then it is not in the child's best interests. Parents being adults can adjust better than children to the stresses of a divorce.
