Posted by Amy Hayes | Aug 06, 2022 | 0 Comments

As summer vacation season winds down, a lot of marital problems come to a head as the school year begins.  Parents are often conflicted as to whether the beginning of a school year is the right time to dissolve a marriage. Deciding to divorce your spouse is a very personal decision. Below are a few suggestions on how to draft a co-parenting plan that is in the best interest of your child.

  1. Attend Parent Teacher Conference as Team.  This shows schools that although a marriage conflict exist at home, you are both trying to put differences aside for the well being of your child.
  2. On the first day of school, parents need to think of themselves as a team.  If one parent cannot attend an event, have the other parent take pictures. These milestones are remembered for a lifetime.
  3. Discuss Guidelines and Co-Parenting Plans: If you and your spouse can come up with comparable rules regarding homework and general school year rules, your child should have a well -rounded school year without any educational surprises for you or for your ex.
  4. Create the perfect co-parenting plan with Hayes Legal Solutions, PLLC.  Call us at 405-635-5578 to set up a consult.
