Is parallel parenting a good option for me?

Divorce is rarely easy, especially when children are involved. For recently divorced North Carolina couples, coming together on behalf of kids can be all but impossible. In this case, parallel parenting may be a good option to ensure kids receive the attention they deserve while keeping conflict to a minimum. BetterHelp.com offers the following advice on this trusted technique.

Moving with your kids following your divorce

Emerging from your divorce proceedings in Wilmington with custody of your children is likely to come as a great relief. Yet earning it can take its toll, so much so that you think the best way for you and your kids to get over it is to move. Many have come to us here at The Law Office of L. Bryan Smith, P.C. with this desire wanting to know if it is a possibility. We can tell you that it is, but earning the right to do so may not be easy. 

Keeping a positive attitude during a custody dispute

A dispute over the custody of your child may be very difficult to work through and you could feel overwhelmed. After all, your child’s future may be at stake and your relationship with your child could be significantly impacted by the custody decision. However, you should do your best to keep a positive attitude during this time for a number of reasons. Not only can positivity reduce stress, but it could also increase the likelihood of you being able to secure an end result that is more favorable from your point of view.

Grandparent visitation in North Carolina

When parents in Wilmington choose to divorce, their lives (as well as those of their children) are not the only ones that are deeply impacted. The children's grandparents can also feel the sting of separation knowing that access to their grandchildren could become restricted. The fear of that happening may even prompt some to seek legal action in order to keep seeing their grandkids. 

Maintaining your emotions during a custody dispute

From disagreements with children to the cost of raising a child, there are times when it can be difficult as a parent. However, those who are going through a dispute over child custody may face an overwhelming amount of pressure and uncertainty. Divorce can be a challenging process, especially when these types of disputes arise. However, parents who are worried about the outcome of a dispute may benefit from trying to keep emotions in check, going over any details of their circumstances that are relevant, reviewing custody laws, and discussing the situation with their child.

Parenting after divorce: should you consider joint custody?

North Carolina parents know that divorce is often hardest on the youngest members of the family, which is why many parents choose to seek a custody arrangement that is sustainable and cooperative. Through a mutual concern for the well-being of the kids, parents may choose a joint custody arrangement. 

I want to modify my current child custody arrangements

You and your ex-spouse have a child custody order in place, but it's just not working for you. Perhaps you want to see more of your child but your ex-refuses to consider it. You have tried talking to your ex, but he or she is not interested in discussing the matter. Is there anything you can do? Can you have child custody arrangements changed?
