Almost a quarter of American fathers live apart from some or all of their children. That may be due to divorce, a breakup, or individual reasons. Child custody arrangements are generally supposed to support strong relationships between children and both of their parents. Nevertheless, a sense persists that fathers receive less favorable arrangements than mothers do.
Going through divorce can prove difficult for any couple. However, same-sex couples may face considerably more challenging issues as they work through their divorce proceedings, especially when it comes to child custody. As a same-sex parent, you likely had to jump through many hoops to become a parent in the first place. Therefore, you undoubtedly want to remain in your child's or children's lives even after your marriage comes to an end.
