CHILD CUSTODY MATTERS MUST BE HANDLED VERY CAREFULLY
Your children are the light of your life so it is understandable that you want to spend as much time as possible making memories with them. When you and the other parent aren’t in a relationship any longer, you will have to split time with that parent. This means that you won’t have your children with you as much as what you might like, which we understand is very difficult.
Coming up with a parenting plan is a challenge for some parents. It is far too easy to want to make things as difficult for your ex as possible; however, this could harm your children. Instead, you need to take a step back from the issues you have with your ex and think about what is best for the children.
Even if you and your ex don’t get along, that person might still be an excellent parent to your children. This is what you need to focus on so that you can work through the child custody matters. Only think about what is in your children’s best interests.
It might seem like overkill right now, but you should try to get as much detail into the child custody agreement as possible. This can help to prevent issues from occurring in the future since you and your ex can review the order if there are any questions about what should happen.
We can help you address the issues that you need to focus on. Sometimes, there are creative child custody solutions that we can come up with that you might not have thought about already. Being willing to compromise and think outside of the box might be beneficial.
