Successfully co-parenting in Texas

Texas is just one of many states moving away from one parent having full custody to shared parenting, or co-parenting. This is when both parents work together to raise the child, even though they are not still married. It is quite difficult to learn to co-parent, but it can be done when both parents are committed to improving their communication skills and doing what is best for the child. However, it is not for everyone. The Texas Attorney General's office has put together a great resource for parents who are divorcing that discusses co-parenting and parenting plans.

Successful co-parenting tips

Every divorce is different, and you cannot expect yours to mirror that of your friend's, neighbor's, sister's and so on. Some divorces can be done with minimal fighting and ample compromise, while others are far more acrimonious and troublesome in nature. Regardless of how difficult your divorce proves to be, you have a moral obligation to try and minimize the overall impact it will have on your child.

Texas relocation laws for children after a divorce

It is not uncommon for a person to want or need to make a move. Following a divorce, if you are the custodial parent, you have to ensure that the other parent has access to the child, and there may be court orders that preclude you from moving out of the area. Relocation might be possible, but it greatly depends on your child custody arrangement established in your divorce.

Child custody does not have to be a source of conflict

When people think about divorce, they often immediately imagine themselves at war with their future exes.

A few tips may help people to approach child custody as amicably as possible during the process of dissolving a marriage in Texas.

Helping children deal with two homes
