How to co-parent during a divorce

Maryland parents who choose to get a divorce will still need to find a way to raise their children together. Doing so can help the children understand that they are loved and cared for regardless of how their parents feel about each other. Furthermore, when parents work together, it shows the child how to effectively solve problems. Ultimately, both the parents and the children will likely feel less stress throughout and after the divorce process.

Resolving parental conflicts over rules

When parents in Maryland go through a divorce, they may face a difficult adjustment period, especially when each party takes a different approach to house rules and other child-rearing decisions. Parents who have joint custody may see their kids switch back and forth from one set of rules to another. However, both parents can work together in order to support their children and help to avoid confusion and disorientation.

After divorce, moving towards co-parenting

Maryland parents planning for a post-divorce future may be thinking about how best to accomplish their goals for successful co-parenting. While the two parents may no longer be interested in a romantic relationship with one another, their commitment to their children is in no way lessened by their decision to divorce. This means keeping some key guidelines in mind to help provide a supportive environment for the children in both parents' homes.

Joint legal custody and shared decision-making after divorce

Many Maryland parents considering divorce may find that dealing with child custody can be the most difficult part of separating. While both parents may love their children deeply, ending the marital relationship could mean less family time. By developing a custody agreement that works for everyone, divorcing families can establish stability.

Mediation can help resolve child custody disputes

When people in Maryland make the decision to divorce, one of the most complex aspects of ending the marriage is often resolving child custody issues. While the parents' romantic relationship is over, it is often very difficult for both the parents and the children to move from full-time presence with one another to shared time between homes. Each parent may have differing views on how exactly child custody time should be split. This can be accentuated during a contentious divorce, and it is possible for the relationship between parents and children to suffer as a result.

Tips to help parents deal with a toxic ex

Following a divorce, a Maryland parent may call his or her ex toxic for a variety of reasons. In some cases, the ex may still be angry about the divorce, may be attempting to alienate the children or has an addiction that makes co-parenting difficult. Even so, many studies have shown that, in most cases, the children benefit when both parents are involved in their lives.

Getting custody of a sibling

There may be circumstances in Maryland in which someone needs to get custody of a sibling. This may be necessary because the parents are unfit or deceased. In the former situation, the fight may be emotionally difficult. Furthermore, it will be necessary to prove that the parents are putting the child in danger. Courts are generally reluctant to separate a child from the biological parents. A person will also have to demonstrate an ability to support the child and offer stability.
