ARRANGEMENTS FOR YOUR CHILDREN
Co-parenting after separation has challenges for even the most amicable of relationship breakdowns.
Whilst you can bring to an end to the other aspects of your relationship, the reality is that you will both continue to parent your children in all but the very exceptional circumstances.
While there are some who are able to navigate flexible parenting arrangements after separation, for others, flexibility brings with it conflict. You can quickly find yourself struggling to juggle the demands of the other parent, your own commitments and those of your children.
