Considerations for determining parenting arrangements: J2-438/2017E-PDF
factors that influence outcomes /
“There has been much written on factors that should be considered when making post-divorce/separation parenting arrangements. However most reports focus on discrete factors, or supporting specific models (i.e., shared care, care in families with single identifiable issues) or do not draw clear links to the existing body of evidence. This document represents a synthesis of elements, factors and experiences worthy of consideration in determining parenting arrangements, drawing on research on factors affecting general child development, as well as exploring specific post- divorce/separation research and drawing a link to child outcomes. This document consists of three parts. Section one describes important findings on the effects of divorce on children from a risk and resiliency perspective and lists a number of important considerations. Section two explores the impact of time spent parenting, providing a description of how time has been conceptualized in divorce/separation and parenting research, and lists the core themes/findings from the academic research. Finally, section three lists and describes common factors that are important for child outcomes"--Summary, p. 5.
