No, although it was rare in the past. Divorced families in times past sometimes worked out arrangements that were equivalent to modern joint custody (Ricci, 1981). For example, the Maryland Court of Appeals considered a case in 1934 in which the child had approximately equal time with each parent, although the term joint custody had not yet been invented. Joint custody began to increase in the late 1960s and 1970s, as courts found maternal preference laws to violate the 14th Amendment guarantee of equal protection under the law (Roth, 1976). [This answer was excerpted from "Questions and Answers About Joint Custody" by Rick Kuhn.] References: Ricci, I., Mom's House, Dad's House. Macmillan, 1981. Roth, A. The tender years presumption in child custody disputes. Journal of Family Law, Vol. 15, 1976.

By petitioning the court to give joint custody to the parents. In most state, Joint Legal Custody is the standard. If you mean Joint Physical Custody, with 50/50 Custody, this is more complicated, requiring preparation similar to petitioning for full custody.

Parents who don't live together have joint custody (also called shared custody) when they share the decision-making responsibilities for, and/or physical control and custody of, their children. Joint custody can exist if the parents are divorced, separated, or no longer cohabiting, or even if they never lived together.

Joint custody is a form of legal custody. Sole Custody: One parent has full custody and control while the other may have minimum limited access. Joint Legal Custody: Similar to Sole Custody, but with a little more access right, as well as the right to be consulted in matters regarding the child, but as a working model, really has little difference. Joint Physical Custody: The parents are the children equally in all matters, including decision making. Bird Nest Custody: Similar to Joint Physical, except the children remain in the home and each parent lives there for a designated period of time, than switch.
