As long as there have been parents living in separate households, there have been child-rearing issues among them. Parents in Georgia are no exception. There are some resolution techniques that can be explored when post-relationship parenting issues arise. A number of factors will be at play during issue resolution, including how well the parents get along with each other and can communicate.
In some cases, child support is brought up regularly. This is one parenting issue that may best be left for the courtroom. Child support is an issue that is numbers related. It is determined most heavily on the income of the parents, the number of children, who pays for health insurance and other mathematical factors. Arguing with the other parent won’t bring resolution to the issue.
The area of discipline is another common parenting issue. It may have been a source of contention during the marriage or relationship and has carried over afterward. Parents must keep in mind that there are different forms of discipline, and one technique is not always the only way. This does not apply to situations when discipline handed out by a parent amounts to abuse. In these cases, action needs to be taken right away.
It is very common for the noncustodial parent to spoil the child during visitation periods. Expect a certain amount of privileged treatment to be given to the child. On the other hand, a kid that feels neglected or ignored during parental visits is another common issue. Share the child’s feelings with the other parent. Offer a modification of the parenting schedule if it may provide a resolution.
When dealing with parenting disputes, a consultation with an experienced family law attorney about these issues can be a good first step. Chances are the lawyer has seen similar issues before and can provide advice to work towards a resolution.
