Sharing child custody in a positive and productive way

For many California families, protecting the best interests of the children is the top priority for both parents during a divorce. For this reason, many parents find that sharing child custody through a co-parenting agreement can preserve parent/child relationships and make post-divorce life easier for the youngest members of the family. Co-parenting is not the best decision for every family, but it may provide significant benefits for many.

One of the key components to a successful co-parenting arrangement is open communication. If parents are going work together after divorce, they must be able to talk, make plans and discuss issues that arise. It may be necessary to set aside emotions for the benefit of the children, and kids should never hear negative things spoken by one parent about the other.

It can be difficult for two individuals who just faced off in a divorce to even be nice to each other. Fortunately, co-parents do not have to be best friends to work cooperatively. By maintaining mutual respect and keeping the focus on the children, a co-parenting arrangement can be workable and sustainable long into the future. 

For two parents who wish to explore the many benefits of a co-parenting arrangement, it can beneficial to first seek a full understanding of the custody options available. This type of child custody plan may not be the right choice for every situation, but it can allow the children to benefit from strong relationships with both parents after a divorce. With a beneficial custody plan in place, a California family can move on toward a peaceful post-divorce future.
