It sounds easy enough to exchange custody of your children with your ex-spouse but when you come face-to-face with this situation, it's anything but that.
Child custody matters are complex. There are a substantial number of considerations courts need to take when making rulings.
Summer break is now in full swing, and kids have been out of school for several weeks. If you are a divorced or divorcing parent sharing custody, summer can be a frustrating time. On one hand, it provides great opportunities to go on family vacations and give the kids unique experiences like summer camps. On the other hand, it may mean regularly doing custody exchanges with your co-parent or getting into disagreements about last-minute changes to the schedule.
During a divorce, one spouse usually moves out of the family home just before or just after filing the petition for divorce. But, should the kids move as well? The decision to relocate could have a serious impact on your case.
