My clients often list among their top priorities the need to protect their children from the divorce process and minimize the impact upon them.  Parties must be willing to share that goal and learn how to effectively communicate with each other about the needs of their children.  Often referred to as “Co-Parenting”, parties can be counseled and educated on the most effective means of raising their children together.  The goal is to give the child the benefit of having both parents involved in making major decisions in the child’s life. Co-parenting 101
