In men and divorce, the following mistakes are made often. Learn from the mistakes from others:
Child custody is the most important issue in a divorce with children.
Child custody in a divorce must be resolved by law.
Child custody laws differ from state to state and from country to country. Child custody arrangements have always to be approved by the court.
Child custody enforcement is taken very seriously in many countries.
Apparently in 70% of the divorces taht involve children the mother gets the full custody. Men and divorce is not a favorable situation.
Normally, both parents taking 50% of the child custody each, is fair. Only if the children are in danger when they live with their mother, go for the 100%.
Physical custody is about where the children will be living.
Legal custody is about who will make the important decisions for the children: school, health and overall well being.
In the benefit of the children, you should work out a parenting plan with your ex wife. You can involve the children, depending on their age.
If you cannot work out the parenting plan together, hire an experienced mediator.
Present the plan to the court.
If you do not come to an agreement, the judge will decide and it is out of your hands. For men and divorce, the judge tends to favor the mother. Try to avoid this.
If one of the parents has no child custody rights, he or she can still have visitation rights. So the children still have the possibility to see the other parent, although they are not living with him or her.
If one of the parents do not stick to the custody plan, the other can enforce by going to the court.
