Parenting provisions: Communication and conflict resolution

No one ever said that co-parenting would be easy, but the benefits for the parents and the children are immeasurable. For one, psychological research shows that children benefit from regular and frequent contact with both parents. Secondly, parents can benefit from dividing the burdens of single parenthood between themselves and the other spouse half of the time.

Child custody issues are different in same-sex divorces

Getting divorced is difficult in the most simple of legal situations. For a same-sex couple with children, however, legal complications alone can make divorcing more complex and frustrating. Although Colorado has allowed for same-sex marriages since October of 2014, there remain many legal gray areas pertaining to same-sex divorces in the state.

Could 'nesting' after divorce make it easier on your kids?

When you and your spouse realize that you need to divorce, it can be a difficult concept for your children. Many times, children may believe that they played some role in the end of their parents' marriage. The more contentious the divorce, the harder it can become for your kids. After all, it can be damaging to have to decide which parent they want to live with or testify about the wrongdoings of one or both parents. It can also damage their relationships with their parents to listen to fights or sit through angry testimony about each parent's worst behavior during the marriage.

Studies show that joint custody is better for your kids

Now that you have determined that divorce is definitely in your future, you may be wondering what type of custody situation will be best for your children. While your relationship with your partner is barely civil on the best days, your children's relationship with your future ex-husband is still strong. By fighting for sole custody, you may not only jeopardize their relationship with him, but you might ruin your relationship with them as well.
