In 2008, the Minnesota Legislature put together a Study Group to consider the impact that a presumption of joint physical custody would have in Minnesota. The Study Group was provided with the proposed legislation that, if passed, would create a rebuttable presumption that joint physical custody is in the best interests of the child. Currently, Minnesota courts review specific situations of individual children to determine their best interests in regards to physical custody. Under a rebuttable presumption, Minnesota courts would assume that structuring routine daily care, control, and residence between both parents is in the best interests of all children. The burden of seeking a best interests determination would shift to an objecting parent who would have to prove that joint physical custody is not in the child’s best interest.
