Child custody matters are often some of the most contentious things that divorcing parents have to deal with. There are some instances in which the adults might choose to get along for the sake of the children. This is usually the best choice they can make since it benefits the kids and keeps them away from the strife that comes with argumentative situations between adults.

We know that it isn’t always easy to get along with your ex. Just because you have children together doesn’t make it any easier. What is important in these cases is that you take the time to think about what battles you want to fight. Deciding what you feel is important, you can focus on those matters instead of getting roped into battling about everything.

It is imperative that you remember to put the child’s interests first. This is what the court will look at to ensure that the children are getting what they need. With very few exceptions, it is usually best for the children to have contact with both parents. You shouldn’t try to block your ex out of your child’s life unless there were abusive situations going on with the child.

As you and your ex come to terms for the child custody matters, get them put in writing. Be sure that you review any agreements before you sign them to ensure that they reflect what you agreed to. We are here to help you ensure that you are protecting your rights and doing what is best for your children as they grow.
