How to parent after a divorce

On Behalf of | Feb 13, 2019 | Family Law |

Parents in Connecticut may have difficulty raising their children after a divorce. However, there are strategies that they can use to make the process easier. One tip is to focus less on creating an exact 50/50 split when it comes to time spent with the kids. Instead, parents should think of ways to create a convenient schedule that allows each ex to develop and maintain a relationship with the child.

A parent may feel lonely when his or her child is not around. Instead of wallowing, that person should take classes, catch up on sleep or otherwise learn to take advantage of quiet time. Those who have trouble communicating with their former spouse should think of that person like an annoying colleague. While the relationship may never be warm, it’s important to work together for the benefit of the children. This mindset may encourage communication and help each ex get over their personal feelings when solving problems.

If a former spouse gets remarried or is in a serious relationship, it is important to accept that new romantic partner. Doing so will help everyone get along with each other. Furthermore, it could facilitate the children getting along with that new person too.

A family law professional may be able to help a client set up a parenting plan after a divorce. If necessary, legal counsel could also assist a parent during custody hearings or in court for any other proceeding related to a divorce or a child custody order. Having legal representation may allow for disputes to be resolved in a favorable manner.
