In the midst of a child custody battle, the pressure of winning legal rights to the child(ren) can overshadow other aspects of the situation, such as the emotional toll it takes on the kids. In the Las Vegas area, Miley Law specializes in child custody with their interest in mind. In order to achieve the best outcome, there are things you can do to help your case and help your child through this difficult time as well.
- Don’t talk badly about the other parent while the children are around. If one parent is constantly putting down the other, the child may feel alienated from you or the other parent, or like they have to choose sides. They may feel like they have to be the mediator between the parents, which can be a confusing and taxing role for a child.
- Be willing to respect the child’s relationship with the other parent. If you can appreciate the value of their relationship, it will show the child that you do have their best interest in mind, as well as reinforce that you wish to be civil and mature about this parting.
- Respect your children’s wishes if they want to call the other parent. Allowing the child to have open communication with both of you will help their transition into living separately from one parent each.
- Let the other parent know if you are planning to leave town for a trip, or vacation. If you fail to communicate this, it may look like you are attempting to flee and kidnap the children, and your chances for custody could be in jeopardy.
