Understanding how parents can handle the challenges of co-parenting can be helpful for parents to successfully co-parent their children. It is important to be thinking about co-parenting early on in the divorce process, as co-parenting considerations should be top of mind for parents while they are negotiating their parenting agreement which will address concerns such as parenting schedules, decision-making responsibilities and financial concerns.

The value of divorce mediation options

There can be tremendous value in considering divorce options other than the traditionally litigated divorce. Divorcing couples may be unfamiliar with divorce mediation or what it does or may be hazy on the benefits of divorce mediation and how it works. Unlike the traditionally litigated divorce, the mediation process, or other options such as collaborative divorce or court-ordered reconciliation, can be less acrimonious and also more private which can lead to a better overall outcome for the family.

With so much at stake, knowing what to expect from the property division process can be crucial.
