As you go through the divorce process, you need to make many decisions that will improve your situation in the future. For example, it's important to fight for your rights in regards to property division.
If you have at least one child with your former spouse, matters of child custody will soon move to the forefront. This means two things:
-- You need to protect your right to help raise the child.
-- You need to make decisions in the best interest of your child.
Although divorce will bring your marriage to an end, the same does not hold true in regards to your life as a parent. Instead, you still need to do whatever you can to help raise your child.
Some of the details to consider when creating a parenting plan include:
-- A time sharing schedule that suits the wants and needs of both parents.
-- Details regarding where your child will spend holidays and other important events.
-- Health care and childcare considerations.
