When you signed divorce papers, you undoubtedly understood that your decision was going to disrupt your children’s lives. However, you didn’t let that worry you too much because you strongly believed that with lots of love and support, your kids would be okay. Now that you realize that you will be co-parenting on a long distance basis, you understandably want to make sure you and your ex create a solid plan.
Depending how old your children are, you will need to tailor your co-parenting plan to fit their needs. It isn’t likely you’d send a toddler across country by airplane, every couple of months. On the other hand, an older teenager might be mature enough to travel alone. As long as you’re both willing to work as a team, you can be hopeful that your long-distance co-parenting arrangement will work.
