Parenting After Divorce


Visitors: 221

A well-drafted plan by the family law attorney for parenting reduces misconceptions, miscommunication and, misunderstandings. It helps the children to a smooth transition between houses, providing security and certainty of where and with whom they will live. The plan will help in meeting the demands of situations that have changed like the child's independence and his or her growth. Holidays, special days like birthdays, Mother's Day and vacations are taken into account by an experienced family law attorney.

When drafting a parenting plan, important points include:

  • Home - where the child will live and will there be any arrangements on sharing basis?
  • Respect - the child should respect the absent parent and should know that both mother and father are supporting each other with commitments to up bring them.
  • Address - when the child is at mother's residence, where and when the child can contact with the father?
  • Trust - when the child is with the father, the separated mother should trust that the child will have healthy mental, physical, and emotional care.
  • Issues like care and development, education, sports, welfare, religion, are important that requires good planning.

    Joint custody demands effective co-parenting. The child's care, safety, and love, are the fundamentals for the parents’ long term relationship. The child should be able to develop an emotional bond with parents, and enjoy the time spent with each of them. An ideal parenting plan helps in cooperation between parents and the child to get the benefits of right up bringing in a well-adjusted and healthy environment which is peaceful, though the child is living in two different homes. Like any successful parent ship, joint custody has its own the challenges and benefits that come from hard work, sacrifice and good planning by a family law attorney.
