How to make the exchange of child custody safe

Having to share custody with the other parent of your children might not be the easiest thing to do in life. Even if you have a pretty good relationship with the other parent, you still don't want to have to give your children to the other parent for even just a weekend. The exchange of child custody in Crystal Lake must be done in a way that ensures the safety of not only your children, but also yourself. Here are some tips to make this happen.

Parental alienation robs you of your rights

Because your marriage was stressful, you probably had no doubt that your divorce would be too. Still, you managed to separate, and now you share parenting duties that include divided time with your children. While this arrangement seemed to work in the beginning, you are noticing a change in your children. Perhaps they are more sullen, less communicative or even uninterested in being with you. They may even be openly defiant and disrespectful.

Protecting your children's best interests during visitation

When you decided to divorce, your main priority was to make sure the situation would not permanently scar your children. Due to certain extenuating circumstances, however, you immediately had cause for worry concerning future parenting plans, namely, the potential visitation arrangement.
