Welcome to Common Ground, a hub advocating for shared parenting after divorce. Children deserve to have both parents involved in their life wherever practical. Both mothers and fathers deserve to be involved in raising their offspring.
In Australia, more than 70% of children spend the majority of time with their mother as a result of divorce. Only 7% are in the sole custody of fathers and the remaining 20% share their time equally. Over the next six weeks, I will investigate why this imbalance should be rectified.
This page will serve as a source of information and insight into this social issue. I will present unbiased material from reliable and cited sources. For such a contentious issue, I aim to create an informative, neutral space where those involved can cut through the clutter and learn about a very real problem.
