Take the Fight out of Shared Custody This Summer - Shaw Law Firm PC

5 tips for taking the fight out of shared #custody this summer.

After a long school year, summer vacation is finally here! We can’t help but feel our kids’ excitement. For us parents, though, summer vacation means work, schedule changes and increased childcare.

For #divorced parents, that can require extra cooperation and flexibility from all parties. Sharing custody is never easy, but during the summer months, there are additional opportunities for issues to arise.

Leaving a #Legacy as a #Father.

Dads. What will your legacy be for your children? Intentionally or not, you're leaving your mark on your kids. What will you give them that will last forever?

Courtesy of Matt Haviland, founder of A Father's Walk, here are three tips for leaving a rich legacy:

1. Cherish every moment - use it to love on them, to laugh with them, to teach them.
2. Let them see your flaws - you'll make mistakes, let them see how strong you are in owning mistakes and setting things right.
3. Moments are better than mementos - it's not about the things you buy for your kids, your legacy will be the great memories they have of doing things with you.

When it comes to #coparenting, it may be helpful to start thinking of your relationship with your ex as one that is entirely about the well-being of your children, not about either of you. Your marriage may be over, but your family is not; acting in your kids’ best interest is your most important priority. #divorcelawyer #childcustody

Conflict happens in every relationship - whether it's rock solid or feeling rocky at the moment. A messy room can trigger a shattering argument, but it doesn't have to.

We asked Allison Caffyn, LPC and Murray Dabby, LCSW from The Couples College for advice on dealing with conflict.

They suggest that when there’s a complaint to be made, the way you start will set the tone for the whole discussion. If you remove the anger and accusation, it will be easier to have a conversation, instead of a fight. Consider the difference here: "Hey you promised to pick up after the girls' sleepover and look at this disaster”, vs. “Hey I noticed all the sleepover stuff is still in the living room. We agreed you would restore order after the kids left. I’d really like your help.”

Marriage offers opportunities for lifelong learning. But when you know, in your heart, that real resolution is not possible, Scott Shaw will dedicate himself to making things turn out right for you and your kids.

Be sure to read my article over family mediation if you think it may be helpful in your #Divorce or if you just want to learn more about how the process works! #LawBlog http://bit.ly/1RpRTpt

In every family law case there are efforts to settle the case without court intervention. The court encourages these efforts, and one very effective process to reach settlement is the process known as mediation. The parties are required to mediate in almost all cases before the court will hear a final hearing on the matter. We therefore do a lot of mediation. In mediation the parties, with their attorneys, will gather with a mediator. The mediato...
