If you are like most parents getting divorced in Nebraska, the well-being and happiness of your children is a primary priority for you during this significant change in their lives. As you seek for ways to help them emotionally navigate your divorce and live after the divorce is over, one thing you can help them with is by finding positive ways to work with their other parent to jointly raise them.
Co-parenting with a person that you could not remain married to is not necessarily easy for anyone despite the best of intentions. Understanding this is important and should help you to be open to finding tools that can help. One of the challenges former spouses often face is communication. As The Online Mom explains, there are many new apps and websites that have been designed specifically with co-parenting and communication in mind.
These apps can provide a central location for storing messages to avoid forgotten information or miscommunications. Schedules for parenting time, vacations, medical appointments, extracurricular activities and more can all reside in one place that is easy to access. Removing the need for you and your spouse to communicate live about every little thing may well help you reduce the overall level of conflict you experience and therefore make the interactions you do have together be more positive.
This information is not intended to provide legal advice but is instead meant to give divorcing parents in Nebraska some ideas about how they might be able to make co-parenting with a former spouse possible and even positive for them and for their children.
