Child Custody Archives

Supporting your kids in the new school year as divorced parents

If this is your kids' first fall back at school since your separation or divorce, or if they're starting a new school this year, it's essential for you and your co-parent to have a plan in place. Your plan should include things like how you'll handle drop-offs and pick-ups, homework assignments and projects, school lunches, field trips, parent-teacher conferences and more.

Bonding with stepchildren takes time and thought

Whether you have primary custody of your kids or you only have weekends and occasional holidays with them, when you remarry, you'll want your children to have a good relationship with their new stepparent. Generally, this bonding begins before you and your new significant other marry.

Handling post-divorce graduations with an ex

Even if you and your co-parent have worked to avoid spending any more time than necessary together since your divorce, a child's graduation is one of those occasions where you'll likely have to be together. You may also have to deal with ex in-laws you may not have seen for a long time or your ex's new significant other.

Go slowly when building a blended family

Many divorced parents have no interest in getting into a new romantic relationship for some time after their marriage ends. They're still adjusting to their new lives. Often they want to be single for awhile. More importantly, they don't want to introduce a new significant other into their children's lives.

Make a child custody plan work for your children

Your children might feel insecure and unsure about what is going to happen when they find out that their parents are divorcing. At this junction, you and your ex will have to do what you can to reassure them that life will continue once everything settles after the divorce. It is vitally important that you find ways to help the children find the stability and consistency that they can rely on.
