Sometimes, it is smart to avoid contact with your ex during your divorce, especially if a bitter dispute over child custody has come up and they are threatening to prevent you from seeing your child. On the other hand, some couples work together to end their marriage and it is often beneficial for both parents to go over the details of a custody case together.
If you are a parent and are thinking about filing for a divorce soon or you are already in the middle of the process, look for strategies to simplify your divorce and improve the likelihood of a favorable outcome for your child.
Discussing key details
Although it is helpful to talk about custody in general, it is very beneficial to try to work out key details surrounding a couple’s circumstances. For example, if both parents can agree on a schedule, such as certain days of the week that work out best for both parties, this will have a significant impact on the custody case. Not only does this communication increase the odds of mutually beneficial outcomes, but it often reduces stress and saves a lot of time as well.
Deciding to cut contact with your ex
On the other hand, there are times when people decide to stop talking with their former spouse. For example, those who receive threats from their ex or worry that their former partner will use what they say against them need to carefully think about their circumstances.
