Child Custody Archives

These are the points the court considers in child custody cases

Child custody cases are often challenging because each adult has an idea of what they think is best for the kids. When these ideas don't match up, there might be a battle. Any parent who is going through a child custody case should understand how Pennsylvania treats these matters.

Plan how to tell your children about your divorce

One of the most difficult things for parents who are divorcing have to do is tell the children. If you're in this position, you need to think carefully about what you're going to do so that you can take steps to ensure you're providing the support to the children.

You can help your children cope with your divorce

Finding out that their parents are divorcing is a challenging point for children. It can lead to stress due to the major life changes that come with this situation. Children will handle things in various ways, so you have to try to address the ones that come up with your kids.

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.

Transition days can be hard on children

The time when your children move from your house to the other parent's home or vice versa can be rather difficult for them. They often feel very emotional having to leave one parent behind. Parents sometimes think that this becomes easier over time, and it does for some children. For others, they simply learn how to cope with the difficulties.

Negotiations are important in child custody matters

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.

Set new holiday customs after you go through a divorce

The holiday season is one that many children look forward to; however, the first season after a parent's divorce can come with great anxiety. The children might not be sure what is going to happen, and this can make them concerned. If possible, you should have a discussion with them about what they should expect so that they might not feel as stressed.

Stress reduction for single parents must be a priority

The transition from being a married parent to being a single one can be challenging. You have to help your children adjust while you are trying to figure things out for yourself. During this time, you might feel as though stress is inevitable. This isn't necessarily the case because you might find some ways that you can cope and find your inner peace.

Patience is imperative in co-parenting situations

Moving from a household with two parents to one with only a single one can be challenging. When you are going through a divorce, you are going to have to go through that transition. You need to ensure that you don't let the stress of the situation determine how you react to anything.

Parenting plan negotiations don't have to be a nightmare

Coming up with the terms of the child custody agreement with your ex might be one of the points of the divorce that you are dreading. This doesn't have to be difficult if both adults are willing to work together to do what's best for the children. You can look into the parenting plan points that you need to work on. Take the time to review the possible arrangements so you know what's possible.
