Child custody and co-parenting: These things could go wrong

Your divorce is in the past, and now it's time for you and your ex to co-parent your children. With the help of a parenting agreement and visitation schedule, you hope to remain on the right track until your children are old enough to take care of themselves.

Unfortunately, things can and probably will go wrong during your time as co-parents. Here are some things to watch out for:

  • Parenting time interference: This is a two-way street, with both parents in a position to make this mistake. Stay out of the way when your children are spending time with their other parent.
  • Visitation violation: For example, if your ex has visitation rights, you expect them to follow the terms and conditions of your agreement. However, there are many ways they can violate it, such as by keeping your children for longer than they're allowed.
  • Putting your children in the middle: Just because you're divorced doesn't necessarily mean all bad feelings are gone. There's a good chance you and your ex are still at odds, which can lead to a variety of complications. Don't put your children in the middle of your fractured relationship, such as by telling them bad things about your ex.

When it comes to child custody, co-parenting and visitation after divorce, you can take steps to prevent trouble and provide your children with the stability they need to recover and thrive.

If your ex-spouse neglects to comply with court orders, such as following the parenting agreement, you have the legal right to seek a modification as to improve your situation.
