This is an increasing number. According to a study published by INSEE on Wednesday, 12% of children of separated parents live in joint residence. This share has been steadily increasing since 2002, when this practice was recognized by law. In France (excluding Mayotte), some 480,000 children in 2020 shared their time equally between two homes. Most often, the residence changes every week, specifies INSEE. The other children of separated parents therefore live mainly or exclusively with one of their parents, most often with their mother (86%).

Joint custody for 3.4% of the total of minors
"Alternating" children represent 3.4% of the total of minors, against 3.0% in 2018. Between 2010 and 2016, this share had already doubled, underlines the national institute for statistical studies. The use of this practice also progresses steadily with the age of the children, up to 10 years, when the proportion of work-study students reaches its maximum (15.2%). Alternate residence remains particularly rare among the youngest: only 4.2% of children under 4 with separated parents work on a work-study program.
Parents with more qualifications
According to INSEE, parents of children in alternating residences have more qualifications, including compared to parents from "traditional" families , themselves on average more educated than those from single-parent and blended families. They are also more often employed, managers or intermediate professions. The employment rate of mothers of these children is close to that of fathers (89% against 92%), and much higher than that of mothers living in "traditional" (77%) or single-parent (67%) families.
"Reconciling work and family life may be easier for parents of children working on a work-study program, many of whom live half the time without children at home," underlines INSEE. However, mothers of work-study children work four times more often part-time than the fathers of these same children (19% versus 5%). The latter are also more often owners of their homes than mothers, and their homes are larger.
The disparities are also found geographically. The parents of these children live mainly in the West and in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, and are rarer in the Paris region, where housing is more expensive.
