Your child custody case might be one of the most difficult aspects of your divorce. It is often said that you should try to get the hardest tasks out of the way firsts. This is very true with child custody but not because the rest will be easy. Working out the details of child custody as soon as possible after the divorce can give your children a sense of stability. Instead of dealing with mass uncertainty, they can count on being able to learn the new way of life quickly.
We know that you might not be sure how to proceed with child custody matters. This is a very personal situation that requires you to think about each of your children individually. Even though many custody arrangements can include all the children, there is a chance that each child might need something different.
As you are going over the case, take the time to think about how every decision will impact the kids. There is a chance that you might realize that something you thought would work isn't going to be the correct solution. You may even figure that your ex's suggestions will be the best answer to a conundrum. Being able to acknowledge this might help to ease the situation. It shows that you are willing to put the kids first, even if it means your ex gets their way.
One thing that we can do when we are helping you with your child custody case is trying to find creative solutions that put your ideas and your ex's ideas together. This might help to address the children's needs in a custom manner.
