Don't believe common child custody myths

Parenting your children is a difficult task, even in the best situations. Things can get even more complex when you are divorced. It is important that you think carefully about what you want to do about custody issues. Dispelling common myths might be helpful.

One thing that you shouldn't assume is that the mother is always going to get custody of the children. In fact, more cases are moving toward shared custody that enables both parents to have equal time with the children.

Even when parents split custody, there is still a chance that child support will be a factor in the case. The court will determine if one parent must pay the other and how much those payments will be. There is a chance that other terms might also be included. Plans for making payments for school supplies, extracurricular activities and medical care might also have to be worked out.

Another myth is that all custody cases are handled in the same manner. If the matter goes before a judge to be decided, the judge will look at the entire situation to determine what plan is in the best interests of the children.

It is imperative that you take the time to think about what you can do to make your child's life as stable and loving as possible. Getting the parenting plan set so you can use it for future reference can help keep the stress off you as your child grows. Be sure that you set the plan for what your children need now because you can modify it in the future if necessary.
