Many courts prefer to award divorcing couples joint custody. It's believed that having a strong relationship with both parents is in the best interest of the child.

Divorce and the fear of living alone

For some people, the decision to bring a marriage to an end can be challenging because of fears about living alone. People may have many reasons for feeling this way, whether they had a very bad experience when they were younger, or they have lived with their marital partner for so long that they do not know how they will adjust to life on their own. If you are going through these challenges, it is important to review your options and take steps to prepare yourself for what lies ahead.
