THINK CAREFULLY ABOUT HOW TO HANDLE CHILD CUSTODY DISAGREEMENTS
We recently discussed how you and your ex might have differing opinions about how to handle parenting points. This is something that is common in divorced parents. After all, if you and your ex agreed about everything, you probably wouldn’t be divorced.
Having disagreements with your ex isn’t ever pleasant; however, when it comes to child custody matters, you might find that these disagreements are more serious than those in other areas. You and your ex each have an idea of what your child needs and should be allowed to do.
We know that the last thing that you want to do is to have to drag these issues through the court for resolutions. While we know that this is necessary in some cases, we will help you determine if there is another way to work through them.
Mediation for newly introduced issues in a child custody matter might be possible. This would allow you to retain some measure of control over how the case ends. If this isn’t possible, you could head to court.
In most cases, going to court for answers about child custody matters is resolved for serious issues. Asking the court to decide if the child can take dance lessons probably isn’t necessary, but getting the court to handle a dispute over the child’s medical care might be necessary.
We know that you probably feel strongly about every decision you make for your child. While we can’t take away all of the disagreements you and your ex will have, we can help you try to get these resolved as quickly as possible so you can move on with your life.
