Study reports fathers still awarded much less child custody time

In spite of the efforts that some states have made to award equal parenting time, one recent study indicates that fathers are still awarded significantly less time with their children. The results were broken down into different categories, but the end result is that fathers are still lagging behind in the time they are permitted to spend with their children. Though Colorado has its own child custody laws, the researchers expressed the hope that more states would strive to revise their laws in favor of shared custody.
