Too often children are “caught in the middle” when their parents are divorced. New trends in family law within the First Judicial Court system, however, are making it easier for children to adjust and to not be left with the feeling that they are the reason for the divorce.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Thursday, Attorney Suzanne Marychild said she has seen incredible changes in custody disputes.”I’ve seen a trend of joint custody awards,” Marychild exclaimed. “I’ve seen an incredible trend of fathers having sole custody, joint custody. They are equal partners in the parenting business now as compared to when I first started.”And she says there are custody evaluations often with the participation of a family law attorney and/or the Family Law Commissioner, Dan Garner. Marychild says “co-parenting” is a phrase often used now to describe divorced or separated patents who are sensitive to their children’s needs.
