Because the temporary parenting plan acts as a bridge during divorce proceedings, it will eventually be replaced by a permanent parenting plan. It can be as detailed or as simple as the parents desire. Parents may create a temporary arrangement based on their children`s needs and their own schedules using custody software such as Custody X Change. The software offers detailed templates to help parents create clear, workable plans that can be printed out and submitted to attorneys or to the family court. Generally, the courts will approve a parent-created plan as long as it shows that the children`s needs are being met in the best possible way.
Working together in mediation allows you to reduce conflict because you are working with a third party. It also allows you to take as long as your reasonably need to reach an agreement that is in the best interest of your children.
Apparently, this is a common problem. It is becoming more and more common with hard economic times where grandparents are going to live with their offspring, or their kids are coming home to live with them, and bringing their kids. In past periods families have lived like this, but it is not common today here the United States, at least not as common as it has been throughout the world, as kids can learn a lot from grandparents, there is much wisdom to depart, even if it does take a toll on the grandparents.
If you are, you certainly would not be the first person to say so. Secondly, no parent is perfect, and you probably weren`t either, but you did learn eventually from your mistakes. Still, it is hard when your grandkids parents are making mistakes and you have to sit and watch all of this go on. It might make you depressed knowing that you ca not do anything about it, or eventually make you depressed because the kids have all that youthful energy, and it just makes you feel so old.
Child custody situations can be stressful and overwhelming for parents and children. Too often, the parents bring emotional issues from the divorce into the custody situation and a custody battle develops. The children are the ones who ultimate lose in these cases. The first step to winning custody is for the mother and father to look objectively at the situation and figure out the best way for the children to be raised. This almost always means that both parents need to be involved in the children`s lives (except in cases of abuse or when a parent is unfit). A parent who is seeking to exclude the other parent from the children needs to take a step back and be honest about their reasoning. Are they doing this because of a personal vendetta? Are the children really going to benefit from this action? If the children`s interests are slighted, there is not any way for either parent to win custody.
For a Georgia Superior Court to deny visitation to a parent, it must be determined that the child would be harmed in some way by continuing to have a relationship with the parent. This could be because of abuse allegations or because of criminal or immoral activity. In most cases, the court will not deny visitation permanently but will order the non-custodial parent to meet certain obligations. Often a parent will deny the other parent visitation rights. This is a violation of a court order and the other parent can be charged with contempt. First, the parent who was denied visitation must file for modification of visitation. Unfortunately, this can take several weeks to move through the court system before the parent has his or her visitation rights destroyed.
