Student loans and schooling: Custody considerations

As divorced parents, something you may be discussing as the end of 2019 approaches is how you'll support your child when they enter college. There are lots of things that parents need to consider, such as who receives tax credits, who takes out loans and receives the best interest rates and which household should have custody in the best interests of lower-cost schooling.

Open lines of communication for more access to your child

Child custody topics can be difficult for parents to discuss because no matter what they do, someone has to lose time with their child. Even if your divorce goes smoothly and you're both happy to work with one another on a custody plan, the reality is that your child will have to spend time with each of you separately. You will spend more time apart, and that's devastating.

Who decides on the custody of children in divorce cases?

As someone who is living in conflict with your significant other, one of your major concerns is how to get your children out of this situation. You don't want them to see you and your spouse fight. You want them to live comfortably and to be happy at home.

Threatening parents: Sometimes, withholding visitation is valid

There are people who worry that they must always give the other parent visitation rights, even if the other parent is an immediate threat to their children. They may worry every time they drop their children off that this will be the last time they see them.

Here's how you can help your children during divorce

Determining child custody is one of the most complicated factors in divorce. You want to make sure your children are taken care of and that they have the time they need with each parent. You also want to protect them from negative situations and encourage them to thrive, even though this is a complicated time in their lives.
