This paper compares divorce rate trends in the United States in states that encourage joint physical custody (shared parenting) with those in states that favor sole custody.

States with high levels of joint physical custody awards (over 30%) in 1989 and 1990 have shown significantly greater declines in divorce rates in following years through 1995. Divorce rates declined nearly four times faster in high joint custody states, compared with states where joint physical custody is rare.

National Center for Youth Law - (also known as Dupuy v. McDonald and Tara S. v. McDonald)

In the sordid underworld of sunny Los Angeles County, where 40,000 children have been removed from their violent, neglectful or drug-addicted families, the pink-stucco True Way Baptist Church may well be a station on the road to salvation.

Just ask Delores Mayes, 28, whose children were seized and placed in foster homes when her crack habit got out of hand. Faced with losing them for good, Mayes entered a detox program for six months but had nowhere to take them when she emerged. That is when the church, under contract to the county, stepped in: its outreach workers found her housing and furniture.

In April 1987, twin sisters were born to a family living in rural Stevens County. The following November, a brother was born.

Even before that time, the state agency charged with protecting Washington's children knew that their mother had "a founded history of abusing and neglecting her other children," according to a lawsuit the state recently settled.

In emotional and often tearful testimony, James Wade told a Senate subcommittee that San Diego County social workers destroyed almost three years of his life.

Wade, wrongly accused of the 1989 rape of his then-8-year-old daughter, said his life and that of his family were turned upside down. "We were put through a literal hell of contempt and accusations by evil manipulators bent on destroying me and my family," he told the Senate Subcommittee on Children and the Family. "Why? Because we had the misfortune of being the recipient of a random criminal assault."

Jim, Denise, Joshua and Alicia were assigned court-appointed attorneys.

Denise said she was in a bathroom stall during a break in one court hearing when she overheard her daughter's attorney, Kandy Koliwer, tell [Diane Anderson], the social worker: "I don't know why we're here -- we know they did it."
