We recently discussed what might happen if you are pregnant while you are going through a divorce. That is only one of the things that we can help you with in regards to child custody.
Suppose you and your spouse are divorcing and the both of you have two children. Is it possible to come to a custody agreement where you take one child most of the time, and your spouse takes the other child? The short answer is yes, it is possible, but perhaps not in the best interests of the children. Absent truly compelling reasons, you should avoid such a solution.
When you found out that you were expecting, you probably never expected that it would end with you going through the pregnancy, labor, delivery and child rearing without your spouse. The divorce papers might have hit you as a big shock.
Divorce mediation is a good way for you to have some measure of control over what is going to happen with your divorce. As we discussed last week, you need to understand the process before you head in for your first session.
One of the options that you have for resolving the terms of your divorce is mediation. If you choose this option, you and your ex will have control over who gets what and other terms of the divorce. You will work together to decide the exact terms. This option is a feasible one for many people, including those who don't exactly get along.
