How to co-parent while ensuring your child feels loved

No parent will ever forget the first time they held and hugged their child as a baby. Showing affection to your children has been proven to help them become happy and successful adults. Now that you’re getting a divorce, you may be wondering how raising your child in two separate households will impact their happiness and success.

5 benefits of co-parenting

For many people going through a divorce, a main concern is how the divorce process is how it will affect their children. Living arrangements, child support and parenting time are complicated topics and each influences a child's reaction to the change in his or her family unit. Other issues, like the child's personality, age, relationships with each parent and his/her siblings and the unique circumstances of the divorce will play a significant role.

5 financial tips heading into divorce

Marriage is a partnership. Most couples marry for love, but once they settle into routine, it's also about managing day to day living. A marriage is a legal contract, after all, and couples share their assets, their home and their finances. One of the most challenging parts of divorce is addressing marital property and deciding who gets what.

Making the most out of a difficult situation

Being a parent and raising healthy, happy children is a challenge. Throw a divorce into the mix and the obstacles can be greater. What makes the difference for the children of divorce parents is how the parents are able to co-parent during the separation and after the divorce is final. This is true whether parents divorce when the children are very young or when they are older. 

What LGBTQ parents need to know about custody in Colorado

Even with the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges in 2015, the family laws governing LGBTQ families are still murky to many. This is especially true when it comes to child custody matters. Many LGBTQ couples often start their families through adoption, artificial insemination or surrogacy, and the laws governing these practices and family systems in general are still catching up to the marriage equality ruling.

How to keep your divorce from going viral

For most social media users, it should be fairly obvious that what you post online lasts forever. Being cautious about what you share online is crucial, especially when dealing with a family law issue. What you say about yourself, your divorce and your ex online is not only public, but also discoverable in a family law proceeding, as we discussed last month.

5 Ways to shield children from the worst of divorce

Even in the face of divorce or separation, most parents can agree on one thing: they want to minimize the impact their split will have on their kids. A good way to accomplish this is to explore alternative dispute options like mediation or collaborative divorce. These processes are designed specifically to help couples work out their differences through discussion and negotiation. Those who take advantage of these processes often obtain outcomes that better suit their family’s unique needs, because they had a say in how matters were settled.
