Child custody situations aren’t always easy to work through. If you and your ex agree on most of the major points of raising children, you might find that makes it is a bit easier. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. When there are disagreements, you need to have a plan for how to work through the situation. We are here to help you focus your parenting plan on what is beneficial to the children.
Each parent will have their own way of doing things. When these differences don’t harm the children, they might just need to be left alone. The problem comes when the children are in danger or aren’t able to adjust to the differences in the parenting styles.
At minimum, you and your ex should be able to work as a team to determine where the children will go to school and what types of health care they will receive. Ideally, you will include these decisions in the parenting plan.
When you make the parenting plan, think about what is best for your children now. You can’t think too far in the future. If things change later, you can file a child custody modification to update the plan to meet the child’s current needs.
It is best to work with your ex to amicably resolve any lingering child custody matters. However, we understand that with some co-parents, resolution might not always be possible. We are here to help you learn what possibilities you have for addressing issues. To learn more about the services we offer our clients, call today for an appointment.
