You can choose to work together for your child's sake

Winning might be your goal in divorce, but is it really one that's worth the battle? Choosing to fight when you can negotiate or making things more difficult on purpose as punishment just draws out the divorce and ends up costing you more time and money. If you have children involved, they suffer the collateral damage, sometimes not feeling as if they're important or that their best interests are at heart. Other times, they may no longer want to see one parent or the other after a particularly nasty divorce.

It's important that your divorce goes as smoothly as possible. When you have children, your conflict won't end when the divorce papers are signed. You need to work together now and in the future, regardless of your feelings toward one another. That means you need to consider what you want in your future. Will you want to still be fighting in five, 10 or 15 years? Or, would you rather spend your time focusing on your child's health and your own growth as a person after your divorce?

It comes down to a decision you make. You can either fight or make a conscious decision to work with the other party. That doesn't mean letting him or her have everything he or she wants or even that you won't disagree, but there has to be a way to move through disagreements without full-blown arguments and stress. Attempt to cooperate with your ex-spouse, for your sake, your child's and the relationships you want to foster.

Our website has more information on how you can take steps to work together after a divorce. There are several options that can help you mend bridges and focus on your child's care.
