The life stages of a child are all amazing. As you watch your child grow, you realize that the needs of the child change often. This is an important thing to remember when you are involved in a child custody case.
We realize that this is just one more aspect of your divorce to fret over, but we are here to help you learn about the options you have to ensure your child’s current needs are met.
As you are honing your strategy before a meeting with your ex that involves negotiations about child custody, you need to make sure that the points you are going to address are in your child’s best interests. This is something that might get short shrift due to the intensity of the emotions involved.
We can help you find your focus in these cases. One thing that might help is making a list of the decisions you feel need to be made. On the side of each item, list how you want to handle the issue and what you think someone outside of the situation might offer as a solution. By writing these down, you can get an idea of which options might be feasible.
We know that you want what is best for your child. Even though you may believe that you know the best approach for making decisions involving your child, you need to give your ex the opportunity to offer suggestions. You might find that one of the options is clearly better than all the others or that your ex actually came up with a good idea.
