Divorce without unnecessary conflict
Most people know from firsthand experience that many disputes and crisis situations can be handled more effectively by being reasonable and responsible. And an important part of coming to a compromise and/or resolving conflict is often keeping one’s emotions in check and working on behalf of a larger goal. Collaborative divorce involves implementing techniques and resources to make important decisions and come to an ultimate agreement that is fair to both parties. Here are a couple things to keep in mind during the divorce process to ensure that individuals are fair to themselves and their families.
Doing what’s right for the kids
When making decisions regarding visitation and child custody arrangements, it’s important to always keep the best interests of the kids in mind. Therefore, both parents should strive to develop an agreement that allows children to have regular and reliable access to both parents. On the other hand, visitation plans should not be based on limiting the amount of child support owed. Parents must be realistic about the amount of time they can actually spend with their kids and plan visitation agreements accordingly.
