The objective of this investigation is to analyze the problems caused by the joint custody of children and adolescents after marriage dissolution. In order to do so, we used neutrosophic logic because it is useful to recommend attention to the conditions that frequently occur in this group of people. To achieve this objective, we carried out an analysis that provided scientific and legal knowledge, related to the regulation of joint custody within the Ecuadorian legal system, which had the purpose of ensuring the best interests of children and adolescents when their parents get divorced. For the study, we applied descriptive research with field design and documentary analysis; we also used interview and survey techniques whose results allowed us to determine in what percentage the rights of children and adolescents have been violated. The results analyzed through the proposed model, evidenced the need for a preliminary draft of reform to article 118 of the Code of Childhood and Adolescence regarding the joint custody after marriage dissolution, to guarantee the rights of children and adolescents. As a conclusion, we consider that it is necessary to examine the social and psychological effects on children after marriage dissolution, since during the separation process, most parents only care about their own welfare without thinking about the children’s, to which is added to the application of the law to determine who keeps the children.
