Child custody is an important factor when you have children who are in the middle. As a parent, you need to ensure that you are making decisions that are in the child's best interests so that they are able to fare their best after the divorce. It isn't always easy to work with your ex to come up with the terms of the custody arrangement.
When you are working together, you have to be willing to negotiate the terms. In order to do this, think about the things that are truly important to you. These should be the focus of what you battle for when you are trying to come up with mutually agreeable terms.
There are probably going to be some points that your ex is adamant about that you aren't worried about. This is where the give and takes comes in. Your ex might give in when you feel strongly, and you might give in when they feel strongly.
