How can I make child custody and visitation easier?

Starting a new life in the new year can be exhilarating for some people in Ohio, but not for everyone. As recently or soon-to-be divorced parents try to get used to their new normal, making sure their child custody and visitation schedules work well is essential. In some cases, this means putting in a little extra effort outside the confines of the custody agreement.

Co-parenting -- or working together with an ex-spouse -- can be difficult, but it is often worthwhile. Divorced parents who maintain similar expectations and consistent rules between households can make it easier for their children to adjust to their new normal. Since watching their parents divorce might be one of the biggest changes they will ever experience, co-parenting with a focus on consistency can help everyone involved adjust.

Some parents also find success in creating dual residential calendars. These calendars typically list everything that is going on at both homes, giving children a more complete image of their upcoming schedules. Some parents might initially find it difficult to see their ex-spouse's plans displayed in their own home, but these feelings of discomfort often fade.

For Ohio parents who are worried about their children's well-being during and after their divorce, focusing on child custody and visitation is essential. Some parents even choose to work together to create their own arrangements rather than leaving everything up to a judge. For those who do, including agreements on things like co-parenting, household expectations and even residential calendars can solidify their focus on their children's well-being and best interests.
