If you have children and are getting a divorce, you will most likely need to work with the other parent on custody decisions. While this can be difficult, there are some steps you can take to make the process easier.
Here are 4 tips for co-parenting:
- Put your children first. Make decisions that are in your children’s best interests.
- Keep communication lines open. Good communication can avoid misunderstandings and keep your children from getting caught in the middle.
- Make documents accessible. Creating a shared document or file that both parents can access can help you quickly share all of the essential information about your children.
- Hire an experienced family-law attorney. Legal professionals familiar with child-custody issues are essential to ensuring a smooth co-parenting plan.
