Child Custody Archives

Help children ease back into life at your home

Learning how to move from one parent's home to the other might not be easy for some children. Each transition is a time of adjustment for them. For this reason, parents have to think about what type of schedule is best for the kids. For some, seeing both parents often is better. Others might need to have longer at each home to help keep things less stressful.

Be willing to negotiate to come to parenting terms during divorce

A parenting plan is the backbone of your relationship with your ex when you have divorced. Your children are going to look toward both parents for stability and love as they learn to adjust to the new way of life. It is imperative that the kids can count on both parents to have enough parenting time to make this happen.

Parenting time schedules vary for summer months

Most children want to spend time with both parents. The summer is a time when this might be easier to work out since there isn't any school schedule to work around. Instead of trying to balance work schedules and the child's school schedule, you only have to think about the employment hours. This leaves both parents free to enjoy extra time with the kids.

Child care plans for summer shouldn't be put off

With the summer months coming up, parents are starting to make plans for their children. For parents who have a parenting time agreement, this might not be as easy as what you might think. The summer might be segmented, which can make it difficult to plan for. Still, you should try to do this as early as possible so that you aren't left trying to stress over last-minute plans.

Extracurricular activities for kids can be hard after divorce

The child custody decisions that you and your ex make have to be based on what is best for your children. This might not be the same thing in your eyes as your ex's, but you have to be willing to work together if you are going to make the child custody case work. Your parenting style and your ex's should work together so that your children can thrive.

Make changes that can benefit your children after divorce

When you are divorcing, you have to think about what is going to happen with the children. It isn't always easy to think about the fact that you will have to share your children's time with the other parent. In fact, you may find that there are many challenges that come along with a custody case. Working on matters one at a time might help you to make it through everything without any issues.

Plan for trips with your children early to minimize stress

There are many challenges that parents have to plan for when they are traveling with children. When there is a custody order in the picture, things get a bit more complicated. Planning can help to reduce the amount of stress and trouble that vacationing parents have to deal with while preparing to leave.

Set your parenting plan based on what your child needs now

Decisions related to your children are some of the hardest ones that you will ever consider. Most parents want to set their kids up to succeed in life. When you have a child custody problem, making decisions for the kids is even more complicated than normal because you have to take your ex's views into consideration. If you and your ex always shared the same views, it's likely you would have remained together.

Parenting plan foundations must be set quickly

Your child's education is one of the biggest ways that you can help them to succeed in life. The issue with this is that not all children need the same things to learn. When you live with your child's other parent, you might be able to come up with solutions to the educational challenges that the children have. When you aren't in a relationship with the other parent any longer, you might find that coming up with ways to help the children that are mutually agreeable is a challenge.

Co-parenting must help children feel stable and secure

High-conflict co-parenting can be stressful to the parents and the children. While you might not be able to do much to shield yourself from the matters, you do need to do what you can to protect your children from this type of unnecessary stress.
