Summer is in full swing and with it trips to the shore, barbeques and summer vacations. Spending time with the kids on a special outing makes for some of the best family memories--but what happens when you're a divorced parent and have to work with your ex to plan extended time with your kids? Can it be amicable or is it destined to be fraught with conflict?
Child custody is one of the most intensely emotional and stressful aspects of divorce. It can be even scarier for fathers who hold the misconception that the mother is always preferred for child custody. A lot of factors play into custody decisions based on each unique divorce case, but both parents are equally considered. As a father, it is very unlikely that you would have no custody or ability to spend time with your children after divorce.
