On Behalf of | Mar 9, 2023 | Family Law |

One of the most contentious parts of any divorce is the custody agreement. In many cases, parents struggle with conflict over the custody agreement and parenting plan. When you can work together and find common ground in your custody case, it is in everyone’s best interest.

There are a few things to consider as you navigate the custody settlement process.

Why should you strive for common ground in your custody case?

Finding a way to work with the other parent and sharing common ground is important. It reflects well on both of you in court because it shows the judge that you are capable of putting your child’s needs and interests first. It also minimizes your stress by reducing conflict and saves you time and money by resolving the case without litigation. Finding common ground also ensures that both parents maintain an equal relationship with the child through fair and equitable timesharing.

How do you find common ground in your custody case?

There are a few ways to find common ground while you negotiate your child custody case. Start by considering the fact that you both play an important role in your child’s life. Remember that you both have busy schedules and deserve equal time with your child and that you both want what is best for your child’s well-being and future.

Working together makes it easier for you both to get what you feel is right out of the custody agreement. It makes the process less stressful because it encourages mutual respect and peaceful negotiation.
