Working through child custody matters with your ex

Your children are precious to you and their other parent. This is one of the primary reasons why child custody matters are so difficult to deal with when you and your ex split up. We can help you learn about the options that you have for addressing the custody matters that come up in your case.

Child custody matters must put the children first

Child custody matters are usually either very easy to deal with or very difficult, depending on how well you and your ex can get along and work together during the process. If both parents can cooperate and arrive at an agreement for the custody during the divorce process, the future will likely be a bit easier.

Make a plan for issues that come up in a co-parenting situation

Having a co-parenting relationship isn't always easy, but you might realize that it is what is best for your children. If you are in this type of arrangement with your ex, you might need to make a plan now for what you are going to do when issues develop. Making the plan when you aren't under stress can help you to feel more in control when you are going through a difficult situation.

Co-parenting might not work for every situation

Co-parenting is something that might not work for all parents who aren't in a committed relationship for each other. This type of parenting arrangement means that you and your ex will have to work closely together to create a cohesive and consistent life for your children.

Keep your children at the heart of all divorce decisions

The day that one parent decides to divorce is the first day in a life of change for the children. Some people try to make sure that the children fare well throughout the process. This means different things for different families so you have to figure out what will work for you.

Make sure you understand what's included in a parenting agreement

The parenting agreement is the backbone of the parenting relationship you will have after your divorce. It includes important information about the child's visitation schedule and other facets of the child's life. Even if you aren't too familiar with the parenting agreement, you will need to get one in place so that you can get the divorce over with and move on to your new life.

Place your child's needs first when you work with your ex

Child custody cases often come along with a divorce, but this isn't the only time that these cases come up. Some child custody cases come when a child's parents aren't married but choose to break up a relationship. They can also come when those parents never had a formal relationship. In all of these cases, the children must remain the focus of the case.

Child custody should consider the circumstances of your case

Your child custody case doesn't have to be filled with unpleasant events that are stressful. Instead, you and your ex can make a conscious effort to work together to make life easier for your children. The benefits of working together with your ex for this purpose can extend to your life and your ex's life.

Help your child thrive through routines and consistency

A child custody case is a big upheaval for the child. These cases often mean that everything the child is accustomed to isn't the same any longer. This can be difficult for a child to deal with, especially if the child is younger.

Get along with your ex to make custody matters easier

We recently discussed how you and your ex trying to get along in a child custody situation might help your children to adjust to the new situation. The truth here is that getting along can also make the arrangement much easier for you.
