Tips for avoiding a custody dispute

Sharing custody can be a difficult situation for anyone. Even if you get along well with the other parent of your children, there might be times where you run into some problems. These can include fighting over the custody schedule. Special events such as holidays, vacations and weekends are common triggers for disagreements. Here are some tips for avoiding a custody dispute.

Visitation and the Reluctant Child

For divorced parents with children, even if you have legitimate grievances with each other, all of that needs to be set aside when it comes to your children. Numerous studies have shown that having quality relationships with both parents is much better for kids in the long run than having strained or nonexistent relationships. 

Parenting Education Programs: The Basics

In cases involving child custody or visitation, including situations in which someone is seeking a modification to an existing arrangement, the state of Illinois requires parents to complete an authorized parenting education program. The purpose is to foster better relationships between the parents, and between the parents and their children, by providing information and guidance. Another goal of the program is to reduce the necessity for litigation in divorce proceedings.
