The new 50/50 custody law is the restatement of the same factors that have been in consideration for the court. There is no presumption of equal time – a presumption would mean that the courts must START at 50/50 and in order to move away from that, explain why. This is nothing more than a “feel good” amendment. If your lawyer tells you something different, you need to consider looking for a second option. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.
