Tips for co-parenting in difficult circumstances

California parents who are divorced may struggle in co-parenting with a difficult ex. There may be a number of reasons for this. In some cases, it is related to a parent's turmoil over the divorce. If the conflict is not over issues as serious as addiction or abuse and is mostly between the parents, there might be ways to smooth over the situation.

Preparing for mediation might help its success

California couples who are divorcing might choose mediation as a way to resolve matters related to the end of the marriage such as as child custody and support issues. Mediation can be a good option for couples who are looking to resolve these matters quickly, peacefully and in many cases more economically than in a drawn-out court battle. One way of helping to have a successful mediation is to prepare for the process.

Creating a co-parenting plan

Research has shown that California children who grow up with parents who are in a stable, loving marriage benefit from this type of environment. However, approximately half of all American marriages end in divorce, meaning that many children spent some time growing up with parents who were not happy. Some parents who are no longer together are still able to effectively work together to co-parent their child.

The benefits of mediation over divorce litigation

When many California couples heading for divorce think about the process, they often associate it with litigation. While this always an option, especially if the divorce is becoming emotional, there are other ways couples can go about dissolving their marriage. One of the most popular alternatives is mediation.

Separated California families may benefit from nesting

Traditional custody-sharing arrangements may not be viable for all families, and some divorced parents are turning to nesting. This kind of custody sharing contrasts with typical methods by focusing on providing the children with a less disruptive lifestyle as the parents take turns occupying the family home with their kids.

Tips to help co-parents deal with summer visitations

For many California divorced parents, summer visitation can be particularly difficult, especially as the children get older or if parents live far apart. Kids generally want to spend their summers hanging out with their friends, participating in summer sports and even getting a summer job. However, there are some things that parents can do to connect with their kids and have fun during the summer.

How to make the most of summer visitation

The school year is starting to wind down, and that means many California parents will soon be enjoying summer visitation with their children. For parents of older kids, the summer break may be more complicated than it was in years past, as teens and tweens often have a harder time adapting to a new social scene than they did when they were younger.

Deciding if a mediated divorce is a good choice

If a California couple decides to end their marriage, they may want to consider a mediated divorce. This involves having a third party who is neutral help a couple decide the applicable legal issues. While this type of divorce can help individuals save money, it is not right for everyone.

Divorce mediation for parents of young children

It is fairly common for California parents who are in the middle of getting divorced to be filled with bitterness and resentment. They may have conflicts with each other that boil over into a battle that can be damaging to their children. It is possible for many couples to resolve their issues peacefully through mediation, an alternative dispute resolution process that occurs outside of the courtroom setting.
