Immediate decisions that come with child custody cases

When you divorce your ex, you need to set up plans for the children. When they are in school, this can be challenging. You have to think about what is best for them, so don't focus too much on what you want. One of the most difficult decisions is often what parent they will live with. If you and your ex live in different school districts, the answer to this might be that the child needs to spend the majority of their time in the parent who lives in the district where the child currently attends school.

You can always evaluate having to change the school district after the current year ends, but it is often better to allow them to finish out the current year. This also helps them to be able to continue on with the extracurricular activities they have going. We know that you might have to make some sacrifices to make this happen, but you'll probably agree that they are worth it.

Another thing for you to think about is that you will have to decide if the child will go to church or have any interaction with faith-based activities. If you and your ex are the same denomination or don't believe in this type of lifestyle, the decision might be easy. If you aren't both on the same page, this might take some negotiating to come to an agreement.

We know that these points might be hard for you to think about right now. Remember that if you see things aren't working, you can always try to work out a modification with your ex.
