Coparenting after divorce

South Carolina parents who are getting a divorce should consider how their interactions with each other may affect their children. Even though the marriage may be ending, their co-parenting relationship may last for years.

Parents who can get along with one another can be important to a child's well-being. Even when parents recognize this fact, it might take them some time and negotiation to reach a point in which this is reflected in reality. For example, many experts believe that it is best if children can have roughly equal time with both parents, and parents may believe this as well. However, they might still initially struggle with the idea of losing so much time with their children. Mediation may be one way to reach this understanding and to learn conflict resolution techniques that can be used after the divorce.

Another thing parents can do is ask themselves questions about how they handled conflict during the marriage and if they want to preserve that pattern after the divorce. For example, if parents managed to keep their conflicts away from children, they might consider how they can continue doing so. Parents should also consider how often they might see each other for events and extracurricular activities and how they can maintain harmony during those times.

A judge makes decisions about custody based on the best interests of the child. While parents attempt to do the same, they may struggle due to the emotions that accompany divorce. Mediation or other forms of negotiation may help parents set these emotions aside and focus on creating a parenting plan with the assistance of their respective family law attorneys that will benefit them and their children.
