Should states have a default custody agreement that will go in place when parents split up, and there must be mutual agreement or a court decree to do otherwise?
For example, say the default custody in Iowa is 50/50 joint custody. To do otherwise, either the two parents must agree, or the parent who wants to alter it must pursue it in court and prove that the other parent is incapable of having 50%.
Would this be a good idea? What should be the default?
