Situations that come up during the child custody process aren’t always easy to handle. You and your ex will usually have to figure out how to come to an agreement. This might be complicated because the chance of you agreeing on everything is slim. Instead, there will likely be compromises and negotiations that take place to come to an understanding.
One way that you might be able to take some of the stress out of the situation is to keep an open mind about the options that are available. The creative solutions that are sometimes used for custody matters have to take your child’s needs into account. When we can figure out what is in the child’s best interests, we can get the matter handled.
There are a few areas that might be more difficult to work out. These include decisions related to schooling, health care and religion. When you and your ex have different thoughts on these, each person might feel so strongly that they aren’t willing to bend from their position. This makes it close to impossible to negotiate. We can’t force a solution in these cases, but you do have the option of turning to the court for a decision.
We know that having to go to court isn’t ideal for most parents, but this might be the only way that you can resolve the parenting conflict. Preparing for this is imperative so that you aren’t fumbling to make your point when you are in front of the judge. We will work on your behalf to show your side of the matter.
