Can you develop a parent plan that is mutually beneficial?

| May 4, 2019 | Child Custody |

When you first begin thinking about arranging a parenting plan with your ex in Ohio, the task of communicating with him or her at all may seem a bit daunting. However, if you are able to separate your feelings and work toward establishing healthy boundaries while developing a custody arrangement, you can certainly create an agreement that will be mutually beneficial for you, your ex and your children. 

When approaching the topic of child custody, you will benefit from being able to communicate amicably with your ex despite the change in your relationship. Remember that while the two of you disagreed about factors of your relationship, you share children together who still need a relationship with both of you. Keeping the needs and best interests of your children in mind can certainly help you to make rational and respectable decisions in developing your plan. 

Verywellfamily.com suggests some ways that you can accomplish that objective including being realistic about the logistics of your plan. Keep in mind travel times, work schedules and other conflicts when arranging a schedule. Remember that centering your plan around convenience or because you want to win are the wrong reasons to create an agreement. Try to see things from the perspective of your children and do your best to communicate civilly with your ex, especially in front of your children. Many times, if you find that your original agreement is not working any longer, you can request that modifications be made.
