Ways to make a child custody agreement work

Getting divorced in Stamford is no easy task for many couples with children. Now that custody is no longer an issue; some parents may have concerns about making their parenting agreements work. Many people assume that co-parenting situations are stressful to the children, states Time.com. Parents who take an active role in their children's lives can minimize the amount of stress their children experience.

Review the parenting plan

Parents should review their co-parenting agreements frequently to ensure they do not overlook any details. It is important for them to stick to the plans as closely as possible to avoid conflicts, complications and unnecessary stress.

Communicate with each other

Communication is an important part of co-parenting. Some parents find that it is hard for them to talk to each other about their children and parenting issues without getting their feelings involved. Parents.com recommends for former partners to "find methods of communication that work best for their situations. If verbal communication is not feasible, emails and text messages are effective ways for parents to keep in touch to discuss their parenting concerns."

Keep the children at the center of it all

Sometimes it is hard for separating couples to keep their feelings about their separation from affecting other areas of their lives. Parents should keep themselves focused on their children. Even though their romantic relationship is over with their former partners, they still have a commitment to their kids. They should set aside any ill and negative feelings they have towards their former partners so they can focus on their children's well-being.

Parents who share custody of their children can enjoy good relationships with them and their former partners. They should remain determined to make the best of their custody agreements by remaining flexible, honest and considerate of each other and their kids.

  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
  • Wendy and her staff were a delight to work with. During this difficult process I felt confident that the outcome would be fair and balanced, as it did. Very supportive, always well prepared and very knowledgeable. Would choose them all over again!
