How to work out a visitation schedule that works for everyone

When families go through divorce, many parents are unaware that they have a great deal of flexibility when choosing how to structure their child custody agreement. It was once the case that most custody arrangements consisted of the mother having the bulk of time, with the father only receiving every-other-weekend visitation. Today, however, Texas families are able to construct a custody outcome that works for all involved.

Many divorcing couples need assistance in working through their child custody options. There are professionals who focus on working with families who are transitioning through divorce. These neutral advisors are able to recommend useful parenting strategies. They can also help parents learn to shift their relationship into a new form of partnership: the role of co-parents.

Child Specialists can give parents valuable insight into child development and how a child might react to the changes ahead. They can also advise parents of the dangers of exposing their kids to high levels of stress and contention. Having this understanding can make it easier to set aside personal differences and work toward a mutually agreeable child custody outcome.

Each and every Texas family is different, and some divorcing couples will be able to find a child custody solution that works for them. However, many parents are still too emotionally raw during divorce to have the ability to work together, even if they both understand that doing so is the best course of action. In such cases, working with a Child Specialist who focuses on divorce and custody can make the process of negotiating a custody and visitation agreement far easier to manage.
