While custody arrangements are often a controversial subject for divorcing Connecticut parents, a recently-published study that was conducted in Sweden shows evidence that children do better when they spend time living with both parents. While it is a commonly-held belief that shared custody arrangements are more stressful to children due to frequent moves, the study showed that this is not necessarily the case. In fact, children in shared custody arrangements showed fewer psychosomatic problems than children who lived exclusively with one parent.
Connecticut parents interested in information about custody and visitation issues may wish to know more about how interstate custody issues are handled. These disputes usually fall under one law that has been adopted by most of the country's jurisdictions.

If one of the parents is then considering relocation after the divorce, it can also impact custody and visitation agreements. There are some things that should be kept in mind if considering relocating with a child after a divorce.
