If your family has recently undergone a divorce, you may still be adapting to lifestyle and relationship changes.

What to Do
If you have not received primary custody of your children, there are still things you can do to make the best of the situation. Consider the following tips:
- First, learn about your legal rights and boundaries. Are you allowed to speak with your child via email, texting or calling? Can you access their school or medical records? After you learn your rights, take full advantage of them, as this will improve the likelihood that you can obtain custody later.
- Stay involved in as many aspects of your child’s life as possible.
- Do not play the “blame game” or attack your ex-spouse. It is best to overcome your anger and attempt to work together while raising your child.
When you feel like you are capable and have the resources needed to obtain custody of your child, you can request a change in your custody arrangement if you believe that would be best for your family.
