Working through a difficult custody dispute

One of the most difficult parts of divorce for many Florida families often has to do with the impact made on children. Often, couples disagree on the best interest of their children and are both prone to fight for outcomes that are most convenient and beneficial for their own needs. The result is usually disagreements that require court intervention to solve, but in serious cases, high-conflict custody disputes create ongoing contention and emotional turmoil for everyone involved. 

According to LiveAbout, when a couple is struggling to reach an amicable agreement regarding the custody of their children, there are a some things they can do to work through the conflict in the most effective way possible. Some of the things they can do include the following:

  • They should try to remain as optimistic and positive as possible. This includes surrounding themselves and their children with people who are supportive and encouraging. 
  • They should learn the art of compromise and be willing and prepared to modify their requests to keep within the best interests of their children. 
  • They should work together to coordinate a parenting plan that articulates the details of how time with their children will be fairly split. 
  • They should be aware of their own needs and do their best to satisfy those needs so they can be a committed and effective parent. 

In a statistic that may be quite shocking to many, the American Psychological Association reported that the divorce rate in the United States is at 50 percent. People who are on their second or third marriage are at an even higher risk of getting divorced.
