The aftermath of a divorce can be rough, especially for the child who is caught in the middle a joint custody arrangement. That is why special care must be taken to ensure that the new reality of joint custody does not prove to be too taxing for the child. You need to be careful not to criticize your ex-spouse too much in front of your child, since this can have a negative effect on the child's relationship with the parent and possibly affect all future relationships the child cultivates. The custody arrangement should be focused on making life easier for the child. Remember that the child is not a trophy to be won from the other parent but a human being with feelings and emotions.
Divorces are neither easy nor pleasant. Both spouses are usually in an emotionally vulnerable state throughout the process, and find themselves acting out of anger and spite, which ultimately ends up hurting their own interests.
There are two ways in which the custody of a child is arranged between parents after a divorce. Either the parents agree to a shared custody, or a joint custody arrangement. The type of custody is determined at the time of divorce by the judge. The decision is taken based on the needs of the child and the kind of life that can be provided by each parent. There are some significant differences between shared custody and joint custody. In shared custody, both the parents get to spend equal time with the child, and the parents essentially work side-by-side to raise the child in a manner similar to how they would have been raised if the divorce had not taken place.

How to fairly divide the property depends on several factors that the court takes into account, such as the spouse's economic circumstances, their future income capacity and how the division will affect their children.
