Child Custody Case Recommendations
- Continue to care for your children’s emotional state. Divorce and child custody legal proceedings can be difficult for children. Take the time to listen to their concerns, reassure them, and be certain that they understand that they are not at fault.
- Maintain a schedule. Help your children stick to their routine as much as possible. If you and your ex-spouse have established visitation, be sure you are on time or that you give enough notice before rescheduling. The court recognizes when a parent is acting irresponsibly or in a combative manner, and it may use this as a reason to side for the other parent on important legal matters.
- Keep communication lines open. Outside of extenuating circumstances, your ex-spouse has rights to speak with his / her children. Make sure that they can communicate on a regular basis.
- Consider how your actions will reflect on your parenting. Whether you are trying to turn your children against your ex-spouse through bad-mouthing or using them as a go-between for passing messages to the other party, these choices can affect the way that the court decides your case.
- Maintain a civil discourse in front of children. Your children should not be privy to the details of the divorce. It’s okay to explain to children that you and your spouse are separating or divorcing. However, they shouldn’t know the details—financial or otherwise—and they shouldn’t be exposed to fighting.
- Be conscious of the role of technology. Modern communication tools, like social media, can present a legal hazard. Don’t use emails, voice messages, or online postings to vent about your ex-spouse. Be professional and courteous in your communications with the other party, and never share anything you wouldn’t want a judge to hear.
