Tips on successful co-parenting

Sharing child custody can be difficult for many divorced parents in Georgia. For the arrangement to go smoothly, an ex-couple will have to develop communication strategies that minimize conflict. Since struggles with communication might have been a problem during the marriage, working this issue out post-divorce can be an even bigger challenge.

Although divorced parents are no longer a romantic couple, they may still need to sit down for couple's counseling. The process might help parents to establish a set of boundaries for their new relationship and allow parents to mediate a plan for relaying information about their children. The goal of couples counseling after divorce is often to increase stability for the children. Since one of the most common sources of conflict between divorced parents is money, it can also be essential to resolve any money issues as quickly as possible.

Parental decisions that cannot be mediated by an impartial third party will need to be resolved between the parents. To keep these talks from getting dramatic, it may be necessary to have them on neutral ground rather than at one parent's home. A pleasant public location such as a café or park may be a good place to have discussions about things like the children's school, sports or vacation plans.

Even when divorced parents are making their best effort to co-parent amicably, there are sometimes issues that need to be resolved in family court. If a parent is seeking a new child custody or child support order, a lawyer may be able to help the parent to petition the court. A lawyer may also be able to help a parent who is concerned that the other parent is attempting to alter a child custody agreement.
