Shared parenting is the common term used to describe a family arrangement after separation or divorce, in which the care of the children is substantially shared between the biological father and mother, leading to a situation where the child knows that both his or her parents are involved in their upbringing. This is generally considered to be a desirable state of affairs, though it is still uncommon in situations where Family law practitioners have become involved, due to the adversarial nature of the courts.
More rarely, shared parenting refers to a similar situation after the separation of adoptive or other non biological parents.
