It just may be my interpretation- but he seems to be saying "co-parenting can actually bring down the risk of family violence"- but that is contingent on there not being a history of family violence. That seems like a given?

Almost towards the end of the article- he posts this:

" it is erroneous, however, to assume that high conflict cases, in which parents disagree on custodial arrangements for children after divorce, commonly involve serious family violence. "

....that is a decent premise. But the rest is garbled. Plus the article's title is "Co-parenting in the Context of Family Violence"- to which - multiple times throughout the article he says 'Well- if there IS established violence, well- that's a different issue'.

I think it's a good idea to have more discussion around assessing family violence in determining custodial and parenting arrangements. Absolutely. But my concern is that anyone who stumbles across this thread and thinks there is solid evidence that co-parenting in the context of family violence is well-established, can bring down the risk of further violence, and can and should be done. Sometimes it can be done. Should it? That should be assessed on a case-by-case basis. With the right supports in place for the abused partner.

My point of saying that someone should seek the help of a lawyer who is versed in partner abuse is on the assumption that they're at the stage of determining custody and access issues of family matters.
