Abstract/Description: This paper examines how divorced parents can ethically create custody arrangements for their adolescents. It argues for a parental right to have custody of the child, suggesting that both parents should split custody. These parental rights are based on the idea that parents should be allowed to continue parenting if they continue to provide enough support for their child and that intimacy with one's children is irreplaceable through any other relationship. It also argues that best interests are not a strong enough claim to override parental rights. Parental rights should be supplemented with an effort to minimize conflict. Finally, it touches upon the need to take the adolescent's opinion into consideration. All of these factors combine into a moral approach parents can use to split custody.
