Co-parenting success is a worthy goal for splitting couples

The most common concern for Missouri parents going through divorce is the well-being of their children and making sure they are able to maintain and nurture a relationship with them after separation.

It requires cooperation and the setting aside of egos, but there are countless examples of healthy co-parenting to which one may look for inspiration.

Divorcing parents can make use of creative schedules

Each parent is often accustomed to having as much time as possible with their children, and when the marriage comes to an end, it can be complex to schedule a plan in which time with the children is shared between the parents' homes. Creating a child custody or visitation schedule can be further complicated by parents' work schedules, especially when both are engaged in full-time employment.
