Custody and divorce?

Dear Amy,

You can deal with your custody issues at any time. It does not have to coincide with getting a divorce.

Good luck,

Both parents want a divorce but one parent has had the kids since the other walked out and now the other wants the kids…The kids are now in school and have been and one plays sports where he is and they are happy. Does the custody issue have to be taken care of in order to get a divorce or can it be seperate and taken care of after…?? Like can one file divorce now and get the divorce without bringing up custody and just say yes they have kids. OR does that parent have to get custody done before the divorce?? Since the parents are not in agreement.
