Flexibility in Child Custody Plans Often Benefit Children

When you and your spouse divorce, you will have to make some difficult decisions -- such as who gets the children for specific holidays and what type of parenting plan you can agree upon. Trying to work through the terms of the agreement can become challenging when you and your spouse don't agree on all the points.

For many people, flexibility is one of the hallmarks of a solid shared parenting plan. Children's schedules will change often, and the parenting plan must include contingencies that absorb those changes. We can help you to work out the terms of the child custody agreement. We want to help you find solutions that:

  • Put your children first
  • Enable you to create positive memories with your children, despite limited time with them
  • Will work to give them the stability they need to thrive throughout their childhood.

Before you begin the negotiations, you need to think about what issue you intend to stand firm on during the process. These should be the points that you feel strongly about -- not minor issues. You will also have to determine what aspects of child custody you are going to yield to your ex. Ultimately, remember that you are going to have to focus on what is in the best interests of your children -- not yourself. That may mean walking away from the negotiating table without being wholly satisfied.
