Custody and access legal memo

How will the parents’ high-conflict relationship affect the determination to award custody and/or access, and specifically to award joint custody?

This memo examines how a high-conflict relationship between the parties usually precludes the possibility of joint custody arrangements. If the parties can demonstrate they are capable of co-parenting, despite the fact they have difficulties communicating, or that joint custody will preserve the child’s relationship with one or both parents, a court might award joint custody.
