How can I devise a workable solution regarding child custody?

Especially in the early stages of a divorce, sharing joint custody of the kids with your ex can seem excruciating. Bust as a parent, your responsibility to your children dictates that you must always keep their interests foremost in your mind.

The below tips can help you ease into a comfortable joint custody arrangement with your ex that will allow your children to flourish.

Work together

It's not always easy to compromise with a former spouse, but where the children are concerned, it can be necessary. You will need to coordinate both schedules and reach accord on dividing time with the kids on holidays. Just know that your children will fare the best when their parents are working in tandem for the children's benefit.

Never bad-mouth your co-parent

Even if he's a cheating rat or you can't trust a word that comes out of her mouth, keep this information under wraps when the kids are present. After all, this is your child's other parent and they love them.

Keep it real

If you're a surgeon who often works 60-hour weeks on call at the hospital, it is unrealistic to seek every-other-weekend custody of your children. Ditto for the businesswoman whose job requires frequent travel out of Atlanta.

The positive thing to focus on here is that the two of you can craft the perfect parenting agreement that adequately reflects your family's circumstances. Don't be afraid to think outside of the box on these matters. Brainstorm with your Atlanta family law attorney to devise a custody plan that's right for you.
