Managing the roles of police officer and parent after divorce

Working in law enforcement takes a certain type of personality. You need to be authoritative, confident and professional. At the same time, you work under the constant stress of often seeing people at the worst moments of their lives while making sure that you make it home safely after the end of each shift.

You don't have to be friendly with your ex to be a parent

Now that you are in the midst of a divorce, you may feel as though your children were the best thing to come out of your marriage. Perhaps you wouldn't have a problem never speaking to your future former spouse again, but you know that you will have to communicate somehow since you still have children to raise.

Filing for divorce doesn't mean your parental rights are negated

It's no secret that divorce disrupts children's lives and often causes emotional challenges for them. However, deciding to sever your marital ties doesn't mean you disregard your children's best interests. In fact, like most good parents in Arizona, that is likely one of your highest priorities as you make plans to move on in life.

Don't skip a crucial step in any military divorce with children

Making the decision to serve in the United States Armed Forces is an admirable one. The life comes with numerous challenges, including balancing work with family life. The stresses put on military families can sometimes result in a breakdown of the marriage and lead to divorce.

Reviewing your parenting plan for the summer months

If your child recently handed you a field trip permission slip, you may have experienced a reality check. The Arizona school year is almost over, and the kids will be starting their summer vacation in a matter of weeks. In the past, this may have been no big deal. However, now that you are divorced, you have a parenting time schedule to consider.

When should you fight for sole custody?

There is no disputing the positive effect co-parenting can have on children of divorce. After the turmoil of the breakup, arranging parenting schedules so that both parents can spend as much time as possible with the kids can certainly diminish the potential for long-term negative impacts on the children.

Right of first refusal can increase your parenting time

Even if you know your divorce is the right decision for your personal wellbeing, you may have some regrets. Probably the biggest regret is that your divorce will divide the time you will spend with your children. You may expect to obtain a fair enough custody ruling in Arizona family court, or perhaps you and your spouse will work together to come up with as equal parenting time as possible.

Don't be stereotyped as a non-custodial parent

In most joint custody arrangements, the court will consider one parent the non-custodial parent. This is often because the children will primarily live with one parent in order to maintain continuity of their lives. For example, if you and the other parent do not live in the same school district, the children would spend the majority of their time with the parent in that school district.

Getting through the holiday custody schedule

You may remember those early holidays with the kids. With a schedule in mind, your family attended church services together, arrived at Grandma's for an afternoon feast, and perhaps darted to other holiday gatherings throughout the week. While those may have been hectic days, you may give anything to have them back.

Avoiding the courtroom could result in a better parenting plan

You and your future ex-spouse may not agree on much in the beginning of your divorce proceedings, but you may agree that, when it comes to your children, you need to figure out a way to work together. That may seem like an insurmountable task at this point, but both of you are steadfast in making it happen.
