School-age custody arrangements: Something to consider

Child custody is a little more complicated during the school year, but it is possible to set up a schedule that works for you and your ex-spouse. If this is the first year that your child has gone to school, this will be a learning curve for you as parents, as well as for your child. It's a good idea to have the new custody routine in place before your child starts school, so they can get used to seeing each parent a different amount of time and know who will be there to drop them off and pick them up each day.

More than time plays a role in custody arrangements

When you're looking at a future filled with visitation and custody, you want to know that you're doing what's best for your child. It's not always what's most apparent that's truly what's best for your child's health and happiness, though. You might think it's your child staying with their father because of the father's work schedule or staying with you because you have family nearby, but there are actually multiple factors to consider.

Co-parenting: You might find this a natural option

A divorce doesn't mean that the adults are going to stop parenting the children they have together. Instead, they are going to need to continue working as a team to parent the children after the divorce. The courts will help create a child custody arrangement that focuses on what your children need.

Can you leave a home with your kids if your spouse is abusive?

If you are in an abusive or dangerous relationship, something you should consider is getting away from your spouse and fleeing. If you have children, you may believe that leaving with your children could lead to charges of parental kidnapping, but that's not the case. In reality, getting your kids to safety overrides any claim that you've kidnapped them when you have the evidence to show you fled in good faith.
