When you file for divorce, you better mean it since there is no going back. Once you sign the papers, it is all over; your marriage, your mutual life, it is all behind you.
However, you still have to take care of your kids and ensure that they are alright and on the right path. For that, you are going to have to discuss the child custody plan with your spouse. If you two are able to work it out, your children will grow up having both parents. Do not take that away from them as it is not their fault. It never is.
Have you ever considered joint custody? Fort Lauderdale Child Custody Attorneys advise all citizens of Florida to consider entering shared custody as there are many benefits for both parents. Here are some of those benefits, listed in no particular order.
It Is In Your Child’s Best Interest
Every child needs both parents. They seek attention and love and having their parents living in two different cities or states can be heartbreaking. However, that sense of being far far away from your parent can be easily replaced with joy and satisfaction. The secret is in well planned shared child custody.
If you and your spouse can sit down peacefully, think what is in your child’s best interest and act accordingly, you will make great decisions. However, if you do things that are in your best interests, your child will grow up with a huge void in his heart.
Let your child be loved and cared for by both you and your spouse as rightful parents. Plan shared custody, and do it for the sake for your child and his future.
More Attention And Love
Another benefit of shared child custody is the fact that you will get to spend some quality time with your child, without your ex being around to boss you or nag about certain things. You will be able to do the things you love and as long as you and your child both enjoy them, you have nothing to worry about.
This way, you will bond with your child and create that feeling as if nothing happened. The child will remain loved and will have both parents around. There is nothing else your child could ask for.
Time To Heal
After a divorce, life can be hard, both emotionally and physically. You are going to need some “alone time”, to rethink everything and make some serious decisions about your future. This is where shared custody comes into play; when your ex takes your child for the weekend, you can take some time off to rediscover yourself and do things that make you happy. Enjoy a glass (or a bottle) of fine white wine while watching your favorite tv soap opera. Spend some time doing things that used to fulfill you, and mend a wounded heart.
Child Custody Attorney in Fort Lauderdale at the Law Office of Gustavo E. Fances suggest that you do this at least once every month, as it will help you feel better and will have a positive impact on your child as well. After all, to have a happy life, you need to feel and be happy.
