How you can make joint custody a positive experience for everyone

While you may have had zero regrets about your decision to separate from your former spouse, chances are you have felt unsettled about the effects it may have on your children. If you and your ex have decided to share custody of your children and continue parenting together despite differences, you may have already begun to negotiate an agreement. At Fowler Bell, we have helped many parents in Kentucky to articulate child custody arrangements that work for everyone involved. 

You and your spouse will be unable to effectively continue parenting children together if there is constant tension, competition, trust issues or gossiping behind each other's backs. Creating a positive interaction and reinforcing each child's need to continue building healthy relationships with both parents, is a direct result of you and your ex's ability to put differences aside and put the needs of your children first. According to Parents, some of the things you can do to keep things running smoothly include the following:

  • Keep your schedule realistic and be flexible with your ex's scheduling needs.
  • Be selective about the battles you choose to fight.
  • Do not gossip or complain about your ex in front of your children.
  • Keep communication cordial and friendly with your ex.
  • Make sure you take the time to listen to your children.

By paying attention to the way you interact with your ex and your children, you can have a better chance at making a joint custody arrangement positive, healthy and beneficial for everyone involved. For more information about child custody, visit our web page.
