Without a doubt, child custody issues concern divorced parents more than anything else does. Both parents want nothing more than to have happy, healthy kids once their divorce is complete. At the same time, each parent worries that the other parent is falling short in caring for the kids. It is a terrible circle of worry and relief that can wear down an individual physically and emotionally.

Our attorneys want to help you overcome these issues so that you can be happy right alongside your kids. In our years of practice, we have learned what can work in some timesharing situations and we would like to give this knowledge to our readers.
Stay kid-focused: It is often easier to share your kids when you focus on the benefits your child receives from contact with both parents. These benefits include security for your kids as well as improved mental and emotional health.
Work on parent-to-parent communication: Sharing children means that you will continue to have at least some contact with your ex for years to come. Improving your communication skills can help you avoid disputes and hostility, which will enhance your children’s sense of security.
Learn to embrace compromise: There will no doubt be times when you must choose to compromise with your ex or stand your ground. Compromising over small matters can improve your ability to make big decisions with your co-parent more effectively.
