Options for reaching a child custody agreement

Tennessee parents who are ending their marriage will probably need to discuss child custody as they get the process of the divorce underway. While going to court and letting a judge make the final decision about child custody is always an option, there are other ways that parents can work together to resolve these issues and reach an agreement that might be more appropriate for all parties involved.

Analyzing military divorce rate data

Tennessee residents who are in the military often see their marriages come to an end. In 2016, 2.6 percent of male troops got a divorce, which was the same as it was in 2013. The divorce rate for female troops was 6.6 in 2016, which was an increase of .4 percentage points since 2015. This was according to data from the Defense Manpower Data Center, and the overall divorce rate was 3.1 percent in 2016.

Coparenting after divorce in difficult circumstances

Tennessee residents who are struggling to co-parent with a difficult ex-spouse may be able to take some steps to defuse the conflict. The first thing a parent needs to do is focus on the children and put their needs first. A parent should also consider what things are most likely to set the other parent off. This makes it possible to anticipate and better control those situations.
