Very rarely in divorce is there a perfect solution to determining child custody and the location of each parent. However, beginning proceedings with an idea of what to expect is an excellent way to maintain objectivity and a positive outlook on whatever the outcome is.
According to the Huffington Post, there are some considerations you can begin thinking through in preparation for making decisions related to child custody and relocation. These include the following:
- Relocation affects everyone differently: No matter who ends up relocating in your divorce, it is imperative that you remember that relocation affects everyone differently. Do not be fearful of the stories you have heard about children forming adverse relationships with their parents because your situation has the possibility to be wildly different.
- Not every outcome is convenient: Unfortunately, sometimes you will only be able to agree upon an outcome that is not convenient. In fact, it could even be a lose-lose situation where you are left to learn how to cope with the sudden changes in your life.
- Put children first: You may have heard about putting the best interest of your children at the head of all decisions. Doing so may not be easy for you, but it can help your children maintain normalcy amid the chaos.
- Your decision may be unsupported: You may very well face criticism and judgment from your friends and family. Often, people may think they understand the situation, but fail to fully comprehend why you have made a certain decision because they lack the details and facts.
