Child custody: Tips for successful co-parenting

No couple gets married with the intent of divorcing, yet this is what happens to nearly half of all marriages in the United States. When parents divorce, the situation can quickly get complicated.  In order to give children a more stable environment, more and more divorced couples in Arizona are choosing co-parenting as the preferred child custody arrangement. Here are a few tips to make co-parenting a successful arrangement for both parents and children.

The well-being of the children should take precedence over everything else. All co-parenting efforts should be centered around this understanding. Resentment is common after a divorce, but parents need to push their personal feelings aside and put the children before themselves. For those ex-spouses who have particularly strong feelings of resentment for each other, it can be helpful to set clear and precise boundaries. Another helpful tip is to allow a trusted third party to help with transferring child from one parent to the other

Also, never talk bad about the other parent in front of the children, no matter how tempting it may be. Always be respectful of the the children's' relationship with the other parent. Remember, the very basis of co-parenting is for children to maintain healthy relationships with both parents.

Most experts agree that children benefit the most from having both parents in their lives. This is a big reason why co-parenting has become the preferred child custody arrangement not only in Arizona, but across the United States. The laws surrounding child custody can be very confusing. Arizona parents who have questions regarding any aspect of child custody could obtain much-needed guidance by seeking the services of an attorney experienced in family law.
