Parenting tips for parents in child custody disputes

The reality of the end of an Orlando marriage with children is that the children and parents will likely not get to spend the same amount of time they did with each other prior to divorce. Despite differences between parents, it is important for parents to keep the best interest of their child in mind, and try to work out a reasonable and fair parenting plan or visitation schedule for the non-custodial parent.

Even though readers frequently read about contentious divorces celebrities have, there are several noteworthy celebrity divorces that show how child custody and parenting issues can be positively handled. Floridians may find the following tips on co-parenting and how to deal with visitation and parenting plans after divorce from a few celebrity divorces helpful.

According to reports actress Reese Witherspoon and her ex-husband share similar parenting styles, views and this has helped both of them to transition into a workable co-parenting plan. Witherspoon notes that she tends to keep her focus on relevant issues when it comes to co-parenting. Despite their divorce, she notes that her ex-husband is highly involved and plays an active role in raising their children.

Another highly visible divorce with a positive co-parenting theme is that of actor Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards. Despite his sometimes odd behaviors, Sheen plays an active role in the lives of his children, and their current parenting arrangement has worked well for both parties and the children.

Understandably in certain divorce cases, child custody and parenting issues can get complex and difficult. In such cases, it may be necessary to work with an experienced family law attorney to ensure that one is afforded adequate time with their child and that the best interests of the child are taken into account.

The reasons for divorce vary from couple to couple, but, in any divorce with children, it is important for the parents to put the best interests of their children ahead of any spousal dispute. It is important for parents to avoid punishing their children for family law related. Whenever possible, it is important to work together, be flexible and accommodating of each other's needs to encourage and promote a positive parent-child relationship.
