Child Custody & Parenting Time Archives

Don't let your children play you against your ex

Divorce is a hard time for most children, but some try to take advantage of the situation by playing one parent against the other. By taking steps to prevent this from happening and addressing it swiftly when it does happen, you can help your children to realize that they can't use one parent to get their way when the other one already gave an answer.

Plan to work with your ex in child custody matters

One of the primary duties of a parent is ensuring that they are doing what's best for their children. When you and their other parent make the decision to divorce, it is easy to get caught up in how you feel about the divorce, but you need to continue to focus on the children. This ensures that they have what they need to thrive despite the circumstances.

Child custody decisions should give children stability

As a parent, one of your priorities is likely making sure that your children are protected. This duty doesn't stop just because you are going through a divorce. Instead, you have to ensure that their needs are being met and there's nothing going on that would negatively impact them. You may think this sounds simple, but it can quickly turn complex.

Show children the power of optimism through actions

One of the lessons parents need to teach their children is that not all negative situations have to lead to them becoming pessimistic. Instead, you should work toward teaching them to look for positives in every situation. One powerful time for this to happen is if you are going through a divorce or are in the process of adjusting to changes in the current parenting plan.

Halloween is coming fast, set custody plans now

Child custody around the holidays is difficult. With Halloween coming up soon, now is the time to determine what's going to happen for all the fall and winter ones. If you have a parenting time schedule set already, this information is likely in there so you can review it to see when your children will be with you. If you don't have one set, you should start the discussions with your ex as soon as possible.

Child custody: Some things don't change after divorce

Parents who are going through a divorce might not realize just how much life will stay the same when they are split up. It is true that they will live in separate homes, but this doesn't mean that they aren't going to have to communicate and work together. They will still need to remain a parenting team as they raise the children.

Grandparents may help your kids during your divorce

Your children need stability when you are going through a divorce. This isn't an easy time for them, so you will need to find ways to help them through it. One thing that you might do is encourage them to spend time with their grandparents if they live close to you.

Uncooperative co-parents can make things difficult

A successful co-parenting relationship requires both adults to work together throughout the process of rearing the children. While this might work for some people, it won't work for others if one party decides to stop cooperating with the other. This is problematic and can ruin the relationship. It also puts the children in a difficult spot.

Plan moves with kids carefully after divorce

Children often rebel against parents who are going through a divorce. This is a rough situation for the adults because they want to see their children happy. One of the biggest changes that might come in this situation is that someone must move out of the marital home. Helping the kids to adjust to this is going to be rather complex for many people.

Plan carefully for child custody exchanges with your ex

Spending time with your children is probably the highlight of your day. When you are divorced and co-parenting, you might not get that chance daily, so making the most of the time you do have together quickly becomes a priority. It is important to remember that you don't always have to do special things with your children. Instead, it is fine to just have normal family time.
