With the new IPhone X scheduled to be released soon, we find it appropriate to highlight a few smartphone apps that can make co-parenting easier. We find that the root of many problems between parents stems from communication, or the lack thereof. A parent can feel resentful when left out of the loop, and this resentment can grow and harm other facets of the co-parenting relationship.
A few weeks ago, we posted on some of the difficulties that divorced and separated parents may encounter when Halloween comes around. Essentially, disputes may arise when both parents want to take the child trick-or-treating in their respective neighborhood. With Halloween coming next Tuesday, we thought it prudent to reiterate the messages that can help in resolving disputes.
Child custody disputes can be particularly difficult when the prospect of relocation arises. It is fairly common for a parent to want to move to another city to pursue a new job, or simply to start a new life. Indeed, the prospect of this can be emotionally painful for the parent left behind.
With Halloween less than three weeks away, it is important for divorced and separated parents to think about what parenting time will be like on their child’s second favorite night of the year (with Christmas Eve likely being their favorite). Basically, parents who share custody must be on the same page when it comes to parenting time on Halloween.
For couples with children, the hardest part of breaking up is determining who the children should live with and how to share the child care responsibilities. There are two main types of child custody: legal custody and physical custody.
