Making Parenting Choices after Divorce
After ending your relationship with your spouse, making decisions about your child’s wellbeing together can be difficult. Cooperating with your ex can be very trying; however, it is important that you consider your child’s wellbeing a top priority. As such, communicating with your ex about decisions pertaining to your child is essential to ensure that they are happy and healthy following a divorce.
If you or someone you know is considering filing for a divorce, contact the Denton divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates at 972-420-6560 to speak with a qualified attorney about your options.
Your Child’s Wellbeing
Decisions affecting your child’s wellbeing should be considered by both parents, regardless of divorce status. Such decisions include:
- Living arrangements – Where will your child stay and for how long?
- Parent child contact – When will the non-residential parent see their child? A schedule for holidays, weekends, and vacation time may be made to ensure adequate visitation
- Insurance – Which parent will provide medical coverage for the child, and who will take care of them in the event of illness?
- Travel arrangements – Who will transport the child from one parent to the other? Are both parents comfortable allowing their child to leave the state or country with the other parent?
A parental agreement should be created by both party’s lawyers and signed. Failure to comply with the parental agreement may result in legal consequences.
For assistance in creating a parental agreement, or advice for filing for divorce, contact the Denton divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates at 972-420-6560 to schedule a free initial consultation.
