If you and your spouse are considering getting a divorce in Texas, you may have questions about who will have custody of your children and how often you will get to see them. Unfortunately, these situations can often turn ugly, and the child in question may fall in the middle of the fight. Here are some tips to help avoid a child custody battle with your spouse.
- Communicate openly and honestly with your spouse. Give him or her time to ask questions and listen to concerns so that you can both work together to create an arrangement that everyone is happy with.
- Listen to what your children want. Remember that the children are a part of this situation, and they could have opinions and thoughts about where they want to live, which you should consider accommodating.
- Don’t focus on the negative. Of course you would like to see your child whenever you want, but making the decision of getting divorced comes with possible consequences. Keeping a positive outlook also will help your children better adjust to this new situation.
If you are struggling to come to a child custody agreement with your spouse that everyone can agree on, you may want to consider hiring a lawyer to help mediate the situation and create a suitable plan.
