Know how to determine what points to fight for in custody

Determining what's best for your children is difficult when you're married to their other parent, but it can be even more challenging when you are divorced. If you are in this position, you will have to work out the terms of the parenting plan so that you have something to refer to when you need to know how to handle certain situations. We know that this isn't an easy thought, but working with your ex can benefit everyone in these cases.

One mistake that parents often make is that they set the parenting plan based on what they think the child will need in the future. The fact is that an infant's needs are much different than a teen's. You have to set the parenting plan based on the children's needs now. You do have the option of modifying it in the future so that it always reflects what they need.

When you are working out the terms, you have to make sure that you're trying to work out something that's realistic. Don't agree to anything that is going to be impossible for you to comply with. The terms of the agreement are for you and your ex, so think carefully about that when you propose points.

As you negotiate with your ex, you'll find that you don't get everything you want. Because of this, you should determine what points are worth fighting for and focus on those. We are here to help you evaluate the options that you have for these situations so that you know how to proceed. Just remember that the court demands you do what's best for your children.
