Section 30-3-150 State policy:
Joint Custody - It is the policy of this state to assure that minor
children have frequent and
continuing contact with parents who have shown the ability to act in the
best interest of their
children and to encourage parents to share in the rights and
responsibilities of rearing their
children after the parents have separated or dissolved their marriage.
Joint custody does not
necessarily mean equal physical custody.
