When most people get married, they do not walk into marriage thinking that their marriage is going to end in divorce. They plan to have a happy life with the individual who they love. However, over the course of months, years, or decades, situations may arise that puts strain on the marriage and eventually lead to the couple divorcing.
Understandably, for people who have spent years building a life together, it is going to take some time to unravel their lives. This is especially true when it comes to financial issues, ownership of property, and questions surrounding child custody. Even when there is an uncontested divorce Tampa, there are still complicated issues that will need to be agreed upon.
One of the more complicated issues for parents is determining questions of child custody. It is very rare for a judge to decide that one parent or another will have sole custody of the children. This only happens in cases where one of the parents is shown to be very neglectful or shown to be a potential risk for the health and well-being of the children. That being said, in the majority of cases, judges want parents to come to some form of co-parenting arrangement.
This isn’t easy because it requires communication on the part of the divorcing individuals. There may have been some animosity during the marriage and during the divorce procedure. However, loving parents who truly care for the well-being of their children are going to do what needs to be done to put the animosity behind them and to focus their energy on working together to make their child’s life better.
This means that they’re going to avoid fighting in front of their children. They’re going to avoid making it difficult for their children to have a relationship with the other parent. As much as possible, divorced parents want to put up a unified front. They will want their children to know that even though the marriage is dissolved, their commitment to their children and their love for their children will stay the same.
