Divorcing couples with children must decide the matter of “placement,” which refers to where the children will live. When the children live with one parent most of the time, that parent is referred to as having “primary placement” while the other parent has “periods of placement”. Also, divorcing parents may have shared placement, which means that the children will live at each parent’s home. Parents sometimes opt to separate their children, with each taking primary placement of one or more children. This is unusual and should be tailored for the specific needs of a child. Placement can be one of the most contentious issues in a divorce. Ideally, both parties are willing to work cooperatively in the best interests of the children. When this is the case, children generally adapt more easily to their parents’ divorce. The attorneys at Pruitt Law Offices S.C. have years of family law experience.
