Child custody cases can be very difficult to work through simply because most parents are very passionate about matters related to their kids. When you think about what you want for them, you can likely plan the steps to make it happen. What you might not think about is that your child’s other parent has probably done the same thing.
We realize that you might have pressure on you to make decisions for your kids. You should think about the options that you have so that you can determine what choices you feel are best. Your ex will likely do this, too. From there, you and the other parent can work together to negotiate these matters.
It is often best for parents to work out the terms of the child custody agreement quickly so that the child can start adjusting to the new way of doing things. These parents should remember that the agreement isn’t meant to last forever. It is possible to modify it as the situation demands.
For the most part, the child custody agreement will change as the child grows. The plan that works for a newborn isn’t going to work for a teenager. Being willing to modify the plan can help you out considerably when you are handling contentious issues with your ex.
Whether you are working on an initial child custody case or working on a modification petition, we can help you evaluate your options. These might include some creative solutions, but as long as the children are thriving, these are likely perfectly acceptable.
