Tips for creating a workable co-parenting schedule

Parents in Virginia who are getting divorced may need to create a parenting plan that addresses how much time their children will spend with each parent. Many courts increasingly encourage parents to try to split their time 50/50 or as close to it as possible. Some parents may assume the best approach to this is for the child to spend alternating weeks with each parent, but there can be some drawbacks to this approach.

Old records and calendars can help in divorce negotiations

When people in Virginia decide to divorce, they may face a range of emotional, practical and financial effects and considerations. While dealing with property division can have long-term financial repercussions, many parents find reaching a solution to child custody questions one of the most emotionally draining parts of the divorce. Most family court judges will encourage divorcing parents to reach a negotiated resolution with the help of their lawyers as they transition to a co-parenting relationship. One of the most important parts of a child custody agreement is the parenting plan and custody schedule.

Maintaining composure when dealing with a toxic co-parent

Virginia residents who have to co-parent with a difficult ex-spouse face significant challenges. A toxic ex-spouse may cause unnecessary problems via accusations, drama, bad-mouthing, and manipulation. It can be frustrating for the non-toxic ex-spouse because their primary desire is to parent their children in an acceptable way.

Research shows courts believe parental alienation exists

In child custody cases in Virginia, as in any other state, the top priority is what is best for the children. However, according to research from George Washington University, claims of child sexual abuse are rarely substantiated when the mother makes the claim against the father. The study found that just 1 out of 51 allegations of sexual abuse that are made by the mother against the father are confirmed.
