Learn about co-parenting arrangements and other custody types

As we discussed in our previous blog post, it is imperative that children and parents spend time together after a divorce. Getting this time isn't always easy; however, having a child custody and visitation agreement that allows you ample time with your child can help you to build the relationship and maintain it.

We understand that you might be curious about what kinds of agreements are possible. We can help you to explore the options that appeal to you. One of these is co-parenting. This type of child custody arrangement isn't appropriate for all cases, but when you make it work, your child can reap considerable benefits.

When you and your ex co-parent, you work together to raise your child. You both spend time with the child together for important events. You keep the rules of both homes as consistent as possible. Some co-parents even spend important days, such as birthdays, together with the child.

Making a co-parenting arrangement successful takes work. You and your ex need to come to a clear child custody agreement that lays out a comprehensive plan for the child. This should include information about how specific situations, such as making medical care decisions will be handled.

We understand that all of this might seem pretty difficult; however, we are here to help you understand the child custody mediation process so that you and your ex can come to agreements. We can help you learn how to make sure that your rights are protected. We will also help you to ensure that your child's best interests are kept at the heart of the matter.
