Since the moment you decided that your marriage was no longer viable, you've likely had a million thoughts running through your mind, especially regarding your children. Divorce can be one of the most stressful, challenging situations an Ohio family can experience. By accessing available resources, though, many spouses are able to achieve fair settlements, as well as provide their children with ample support to help them cope with change and adapt to a new lifestyle.
A main priority in most divorces involving children concerns a co-parenting plan. You'll need one. The court typically makes decisions regarding custody, visitation and child support on a case-by-case basis, which is good news because it means you are able to customize your plan with your children's best interests in mind. In fact, you and your spouse may be able to write the terms of your own agreement, then simply seek the court's approval.
On the other hand, if you and your spouse disagree on matters of custody or support, litigation may be necessary to help resolve the issues in question. Amicable proceedings are not only possible but probable, if you and your spouse are both willing to cooperate and compromise as necessary in order to devise a plan that best fits your children's needs. If your spouse is not willing to cooperate, things can get quite messy in court.
