Three co-parenting tips for Philadelphia divorced parents


Divorce is not just a life-altering situation for former spouses but it greatly affects children as well. Children must go through the often-sensitive and tedious process of a child custody battle. They also have to adjust to limited and less-than-ideal interactions with their parents. Often, children get lost in the shuffle and lose their sense of security. However, there are three ways for co-parents to address the situation and make the most out of their custody arrangement.

Shared parenting can make a difference in child custody disputes


In Philadelphia, the best interests of the child is the focal point of all child custody issues. However, in divorce, divorcing parents often forget the fact that their children's future is on the line in every child custody dispute. In most cases, one parent often aims to gain the sole custody of the child without considering the feelings of the other parent who may also want to have a relationship with the child. Limited visitation rights will be difficult for the non-custodial parent and for the child as well.

However, they are still connected; they have a son, who is in the middle of their child custody battle.

Settling child custody with an uncooperative ex-spouse


Many divorced couples, including those in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, understand that disputes arising from child custody and visitation can occur. Disputes are possible because parents are concerned about their child; however, sometimes, a divorced parent may be uncooperative with his or her co-parent because of bitter feelings toward the other spouse.

Special occasions a custody and visitation concern for parents


Child custody matters are not a common divorce issue that ends when the divorce has been finalized. Although child custody mainly concerns the best interests of the child, not all parents are necessarily on the same page when it comes to what that means. Conflicts and disagreements are expected. Even parents in Philadelphia may relate to this. Unfortunately, the disputes between parents may also happen during the child's special events.

Sibling bond and split child custody decrees


If the marriage falls apart, what happens to half-siblings? Here in Philadelphia, there are distinct provisions that force children without blood ties to be separated. It is unfortunate but laws do exist that legally end relationships between children.

Parenting coordination in child custody disputes


In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania many residents are submerged in their ongoing divorce battles. These battles may become more grueling because a divorcing couple often disagrees regarding child custody issues. Although the parents' aim is to act in the child's best interest, parents sometimes become so involved in these heated battles that they tend to forget about the child. Fortunately, there is a promising profession that may help these co-parents properly coordinate with each other in taking care of the children.

Fathers play important role after child custody settled

For decades, mothers have usually been granted custody of their children in the resolution of divorce cases. The role of fathers was typically overlooked in family courts because they were assumed to be less fit than the mothers in raising children. As time has gone by, though, fathers have become larger parts of their children's lives. Now Philadelphia fathers can seek shared parenting as part of a child-custody settlement that looks after the best interests of their children.
