Help your children adjust to visitation with these 3 tips

Your children are old enough to understand what a divorce is and what happens during one, but one thing that you've noticed is that they're having a hard time adjusting to the new custody schedule. You knew there might be some issues at first, but over time, you've realized that your children are having some real problems coping.

What kind of home should you choose for your kids after divorce?

When you decided to get a divorce, you knew that your children would have to go through it, too. You knew that you wouldn't be guaranteed custody, either. Now, you've found that you need to assert yourself and show that you're a good parent, because your estranged spouse is doing their best to make it seem like you aren't.

What should you do if your ex violates a custody order?

Sometimes, problems come up, and visitation orders aren't followed. For example, your child might get sick and not be well enough to travel to the other parent's home, or you might have an emergency and need to head to a family member's home. There are times when accidents and one-off events happen and impact a custody schedule, but on the whole, people understand that life is unpredictable.

Should your child get a say in custody arrangements?

You and your ex-spouse are happy to listen to what your child has to say, but you want to make sure that the custody arrangements you have in place are what's best for them. By law, you, as parents, have the most control over custody arrangements if you and your ex create a parenting plan and custody schedule together.

Get a good emergency plan in place to protect your child

When you leave your child with a third party instead of your ex-spouse, you and your ex-spouse need to have plans on how to react if an emergency takes place. There are many times when parents leave their children with day cares or babysitters. Those individuals are usually given information on who to call to pick up the child, but you may not have thought about what to do if you or the other person listed isn't available.

Preparing your children for divorce

If your marriage is headed for divorce it's important to guide the children through the situation as easily as possible. Divorce is never easy when there are children in the marriage. You need to let them express their feelings and thoughts about what is happening. They must also know that they are not the reason for the split. Here's how you can prepare your children for divorce.
