How to raise children after a divorce

Some Pennsylvania parents may be wondering if they will be able to maintain a relationship with their children after a divorce. In most cases, a parent is allowed to have custody or other rights to a child. Physical custody means that a child spends the majority of his or her time with that parent. Legal custody refers to the parent who has the right to make important decisions about a child.

It is possible that parents will share both legal and physical custody. In such a scenario, the parents themselves may decide a custody schedule and who will make which child-rearing decisions. If a parent has sole physical custody of children , the other parent is generally allowed contact with them.

Custody arrangements can be customized to meet the needs of the parents and child. For example, the child may stay in the same house while the parents rotate between the marital home and another residence. This might be ideal for the child because it creates a sense of stability when other parts of their life feel more fluid.

When an individual decides to end his or her marriage, it could be wise to talk to a lawyer about how to proceed in doing so. This can make it easier to create a parenting plan that benefits the parents and children moving forward. An attorney could also help if there's a custody dispute or any other disagreement that needs to be addressed. Ideally, parents will resolve their issues in a manner that meets the best interests of their children.
