Joint physical custody, as one of the solutions used after the divorce of parents, has been widely commented on and studied by various specialists. It has been debated for several decades now whether it isa good solution for children. Researchers consider the fact that children live de facto in two homes,which may be uncomfortable for them and expose them to repercussions resulting from the conflictbetween parents. However, there is a noticeable change of emphasis in the discussion on this topic.Researchers are now asking whether child’s exposure to conflict and some discomfort resulting fromthe change of placement is less important than the child’s relationship with both parents. The aim of thisarticle is to introduce the issue of joint physical custody in the said context. Based on the research andanalyses conducted by various researchers, it can be concluded that in situations of controlled conflictbetween parents, shared parenting is a good solution for children. It allows contact with both motherand father and ensures that both parents are actively involved in the upbringing of their children.
