Family Law Attorneys Fight for Families

Many parents fail to realize that they are still co-parents even after a divorce. This means no matter what their feelings are toward each other, their goals should always be geared toward the best interests of their children. I am an attorney practicing family law, and I see parents every day who have forgotten that children should always come first. I hope that this blog will remind people that kids can be terribly hurt when their parents get divorced and that it is up to the adults in their lives to provide a secure foundation where they can feel safe and know that they are cared for. Children are often innocent victims of divorce. Learn how to protect your kids.

How To Make The Most Of Your Visitation Rights

After a divorce, you never want to stop pursuing your children, no matter what the obstacle. Your children need you in their lives and the problems that you have with your ex spouse should not stand in the way of your relationship with your kids. Write letters, call, communicate online and have as much face time as possible.

Make the Most of Your Visitation Time

When you are able to spend time with your children, make sure to make the most of the time. Find ways to make the day special. Find activities that your child will love to do that he or she does only with you. For example, you may go camping and fishing together. 

Make sure that your home is also the home of your children. If possible, have rooms where your children can spend the night. Let your children decide how they want to decorate your home. The more that they feel at home, the more secure they will feel.

Be Respectful of Your Ex

Both you and your ex should be respectful of each other, especially around your children. Your ex is very important to your children and any negativity will be more hurtful toward them. 

Get Involved in School and After School Programs

Find ways to get involved in your child's schooling. For example, help your child with his or her homework. Find out about what your child is learning about and offer to volunteer in school trips. However, as children enter their teenage years, they sometimes do not their parents as involved in school activities.

Attend extracurricular activities whenever you can. For instance, attend a sports meet to cheer for your child. If your child has joined the Boy Scouts, consider becoming a Boy Scout leader. 

Be Consistent

Try to maintain consistency and live as close to your children as possible. This will reduce anxiety and also disrupt your child's life less when it is time to come visit. Your child won't have to choose between you and other activities.

Always work with a divorce lawyer to make sure that you have the best possible custody arrangement. The amount of time that you are able to spend with your kids is often dictated by the court, but a divorce attorney can help you ensure that the courts rule in your favor. The courts are responsible for ruling in a manner that is considered in the best interest of your child. Therefore, you will need to put together a case for why your child's live would be improved if there was a change in custody or more visitation rights.
