How does a couple decide whether their children should live with one parent or split time between both parents?

It depends on the family dynamic, the historical responsibility of each parent, and the needs of the children themselves. If the parties are able to be somewhat amicable and really focus on those things, it will guide them to generating a schedule that is in the best interests of the children. Divorcing parents should never put their own interests ahead of those of their children. We see many cases that are similar economically and geographically, and yet the parenting schedules that work best for the children are very, very different.
