Creating a custody plan is possible if you think it through

Child custody disputes are among the hardest things to deal with. You don't want to do anything that could hurt your child, but you also don't want to allow the other parent to take them from you for more time than is necessary. You know that your child deserves time with you and the other parent, but it's hard to decide just how much time is enough.

Design a good custody plan to make your situation better

Child custody is one of the few parts of a divorce that can become extremely contentious quickly. One of the problems that causes such disputes is that the parents have to decide how to split their time with their children. In most cases, families already share time with their children, but when it comes to the reality of not having a child at home, it becomes much more of a reality that everything is changing.

Custody mediation makes a difference in custody cases

If you and your ex-spouse aren't comfortable working together on your own to make parenting plans and custody arrangements, you may find yourself in a position where you think the court will have to make the arrangements for you. That's not usually the best option, so one other thing you may want to consider first is custody mediation.

Does race play a role in a custody case?

As someone in a mixed-race marriage, you know that your divorce could make things complicated. Not only do you have mixed-race children, but you also have family on both sides to consider. Culturally, you and your spouse may be different, but for your children's sake, you need to make your cultures work together.
