Mother's Day in your post-divorce, co-parenting world

MothersDay.jpgMother's Day is rapidly approaching, and if this is your first one after your divorce or separation, it could be bittersweet. If you thought to include a clause in your parenting agreement that the children spend the day with you despite any other scheduled visitation with the other parent, and vice versa on Father's Day, then you will most likely get to spend that time with your children.

Can violating a parenting plan get you into trouble?

You hammered out the best parenting plan you could with your ex-spouse, but things change and it's no longer working. Your ex isn't interested in negotiating any changes, and in a moment of frustration, you think, "What can they do to me, anyhow, if I don't follow the plan?"

Will a toxic marriage lead to a nasty divorce?

It is an unfortunate reality that there are manipulative and narcissistic people in the world. In many cases, it can be difficult for individuals to pick out those types of people, because they often have the ability to come across as amiable, fun, charming and more, especially if it suits their needs or wants. When you first met your spouse, you may have considered him or her charismatic and attentive, but after you got married, things changed.

Have you given notice of your summer custody plans?

It's not too early to be thinking about summer and your plans with the children. You may have a trip in mind, visits to distant relatives or other arrangements to make. Don't be too quick to make reservations and travel plans if you share custody of the children with their other parent. There are certain steps you must take before changing your possession order.
