Co-Parenting with Your Ex in Arizona | Hildebrand Law, PC

Thu 14th Dec, 2017 Arizona Child Custody Laws

Sadly, even some of the strongest relationships are unable to withstand the test of time.

When you end your relationship, you may hope to never have to speak to your ex again.

You will forever be tied to your ex-spouse if you have children together, requiring you to work with them.

Although this can prove to be challenging, it is in the best interest of the child(ren) for the parents to work together in their care. Figuring out how to co-parent with your ex appropriately will be of benefit to all parties involved.

Post Divorce Communication

Throughout a divorce, you will use a family law attorney to communicate with your ex. When the divorce is final and the dust has settled, more than likely you will be required to start communicating with them again if you have children.

In some cases, you may decide to access a personal representative to manage the communication with your ex.

Communicating with Someone you Dislike

Thankfully, due to advances in technology, there are various forms of communication as opposed to speaking face to face or by phone.

Especially when it comes to making plans around the details, such as expenses, visitation changes, and weekend exchanges.

In some cases, parents may choose to co-parent through text message or email as an alternative to other types of communication. Another benefit to this is the ability to keep a record of communications that occur around co-parenting.

Whether it is during an exchange for weekend visitation or in the stands at a basketball game, you will eventually come face to face with your ex, despite all efforts made to avoid them.

Although this may feel uncomfortable for you, it will make a positive impact on your child when they see that you both are there to cheer for them at the game.
