Child Custody - Divorce Legal Blogs Posted by Joseph E. Marvin - Lawyers.com

Minnesota residents who are going through a divorce have many things to consider. If they are parents, one of their primary concerns will be raising their children after the split. For many couples, this means figuring out how to co-parent successfully while keeping the best interest of the children at the forefront.

Child custody may be complicated to navigate, but parents can make it work. Communication is the key to successful co-parenting, but it can be tricky when there might be strong emotions related to the divorce. Working to actively prevent miscommunication and confusion by making clear plans for transitions, holidays and other important events can save both parents and kids a lot of heartache. One way to achieve this is by communicating via the internet through email and apps designed for this and setting up online calendars accessible to all.
