A few weeks ago, I blogged about an oped article in the Washington Post, where David Levy, CEO of the Children’s Rights Council advocates the presumption of joint custody and posits that “sole-custody court battles often drive mothers and fathers, pardon the expression, “nuts,”.
Again in a bitter contested divorce and custody case where the custody was granted to the mom, and subsequently mom disappeared leaving the children behind, the dad (a Linux visionary) after a six month trial has been found guilty of murder (no body, no crime scene, no reliable eyewitnesses, and virtually no physical evidence).
We will probably never know what really happened, but would things have been different if joint custody had been granted?????
