The court may award shared custody based on four criteria. First, both parents must be capable of making child-rearing decisions and willing to provide care and love to the child. Second, both parents must be willing to have continued and active involvement in the child’s life. Third, the child must find both parents as sources for love and security, and last, there must be at least a minimal amount of cooperation between the mother and father.
