Strains To Parenting Agreement Best Resolved With Legal Help
Riverside County, CA (Law Firm Newswire) November 4, 2011 - With the school season in full swing and the holidays just around the corner, single parents can start to feel the tension of their parenting agreement. Family therapists say that if a parent is starting to complain about the ex failing on their part of the parenting agreement more than 30 percent of the time, it is time to get a family law attorney’s guidance to modify it. Not only will this help make the single parent less stressed, it has a better effect on the children’s quality of life.
“Inevitably, single parents have come to us with their lives in shambles and a lot of anger about them having to do more parenting duties and provide for the kids when their ex agreed to something very different when the divorce was finalized,” said Riverside County family law attorney Gerald Maggio, of the Maggio Law Firm.
A revised parenting agreement can be created to reflect a child’s school schedule and extracurricular activities, a parent’s employment and income, and any other special needs. To be approved, these changes must be legitimate and proven with paystubs or W2s, for example. And if communication is also a big issue between the two parents, it is best to meet with a family law attorney who can also do mediation as a neutral party. With mediation each side can express their concerns and come to a mutual resolution for what is best for the parenting agreement and the kids.
“If your ex’s expectations are way out of line or you feel like things are getting too unfair, you do not want to become a victim of allowing this behavior to continue,” said Maggio. “In due time, the kids will start to feel your angst and get caught in the parenting shuffle. Do not let conflict and stress continue to build for months and years.”
