One of the most pressing concerns for divorcing parents is the well-being of their children. Unfortunately, the stress of divorce often pushes these concerns into the background. Unfortunately, sometimes parents don't even realizing that this is happening. This is especially a danger in contentious divorces when both parents are intent on getting what they want, but also getting through the process as quickly as possible.
It is only in the aftermath of divorce that many people realize they still must learn how to co-parent effectively with their exes. Even when you have a legal document spelling out each parent's visitation time and parental responsibilities, it remains difficult for some to enter into this new relationship with a co-parent.
Each divorce is as unique as the people involved, which means you need personalized legal guidance instead of cookie cutter tips.
