After spending several years in the limelight on their family’s reality TV show, Jon and Kate Gosselin were involved in a very public divorce battle. The couple had initially gained attention for their amicable relationship while dealing with the stresses of parenting eight children, including sextuplets. In getting divorced, however, the couple was confronted with the task of creating a child custody arrangement.
Time sharing, parenting plans, meaningful access: These are of equal importance to caring parents involved in the divorce process, regardless of gender. Loving parents -- both moms and dads -- will want to ensure that they foster a strong, close and continuing relationship with their children, whether they have physical custody as the primary caregiver or seek meaningful access as the non-custodial parent.
