Divorce child custody law to be reviewed

The newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports that the law on the custody of children after a divorce is to be reviewed after the number of custody disputes has nearly doubled since new rules were introduced in 2006.

Critics say the rule that divorced parents can only receive joint custody if they cooperate discourages them from doing so.

Dagens Nyheter says the Ministry of Justice wants to the review to be carried out before the 2014 elections.
