The art of shared parenting

If you are in the midst of a divorce in Florida or perhaps have already completed your divorce and you have to now raise your children with your former spouse, you might be wondering how in the world you can do this. There were certainly reasons that you and your partner chose to end your marriage and those often include some inability to work together yet here you are still needing to do just that. 

Today's Parent indicates there are a few things that may help both of you and your children. One idea is to leverage one of the many online tools or apps designed for coparents. They allow you to have one master calendar and schedule with everything from visitation dates to piano recitals and more in one place. You may also post and share photos, notes and more. Some even allow child support payments to be tracked. The inherent recordkeeping in these tools may well avoid disputes down the road.

Another thing to consider is to have regular parent meetings without the kids present. These might be once every quarter or six months and allow you to review schedules, concerns about your children, activities and more. It also allows you to be flexible with your arrangements based upon your child's naturally changing interests and needs.

If you would like to learn more about the things you can do to help make coparenting with your former spouse easier and more positive for everyone, please feel free to visit the shared parenting page of our Florida family law and divorce website.
