We recently discussed some of the challenges that are facing co-parents. All of these issues can also impact the children, especially if the children are being forced to endure their parents arguing on a constant basis.
One thing that you need to remember is that your children are looking to you as a role model. How you handle the conflicts with your ex can shape the way your child will handle conflicts. This is something that you can’t take lightly.
We understand that there are going to be challenges that you and your ex face. Ideally, both parents will be able to act like responsible adults and get the matters resolved in private without having to involve the children.
There are some cases in which you and your ex might not be able to come to an agreement about decisions that need to made. In these cases, you may consider filing paperwork for a child custody modification to address the issues at hand.
A child custody modification isn’t something that is appropriate for small decisions. Instead, there are certain criteria that you should review to ensure that your case meets them. This can help you figure out when you need to take legal action and when you should just agree to disagree.
We know that you are only trying to do what you feel is best for your children. If you feel strongly about the matter and find that there is a discrepancy between what you and your ex want, we can help you find ways that you might be able to resolve the issues.
