Treat your ex cordially when dealing with child custody matters

We recently discussed the reason why you and your ex should discuss matters related to your children. If you recall, one reason is that your child's immune system can be impacted by parents who have divorced and don't communicate. We want you to know that there are also other reasons for you and your ex to communicate.

Children can get ill when divorced parents don't communicate

Many people don't realize just how stressful divorce is until they live through one of their own. Did you know that divorce is very stressful for the children involved and not just the adults? This stress on the children is something that parents can help to control, but failing to do so can have negative impacts on the child's health.

Discuss important points for a child custody case

We recently discussed some methods you can use to help your children cope with the divorce. You have to think about your child's needs and emotions when you are going through a divorce. Your children's well being should be at the heart of all the decisions you make regarding the divorce, and child custody in particular.

Use the time you have with your child to build a relationship

Visitation is a huge part of child custody cases. You and your child need time together so you can build and maintain a relationship. This can't happen if you aren't able to see your child. As we discussed in a previous blog post, visitation schedules vary from one case to the next. The important thing to remember is that your child's best interests must remain at the heart of the case.

Remember to put your child first in child custody cases

As you go through a child custody battle, it is easy to focus on how to get to your ex. You might want to make things difficult for your ex. Trying to do that can make your focus move away from your child, and it is crucial that your focus remains on what is best for your child.

Joint custody doesn't have to be a hassle

The previous post on this blog discussed how important it is to put your child first if you are in the midst of a custody battle. The importance of doing that doesn't end when the agreement is made. Instead, putting your child first must continue until your child is an adult who is making his or her own decisions.
