IL custody lawyerParenting is never easy, even if you are still together with the other parent of your child. After divorce, especially, parenting can become even more difficult when you have to agree on when the children will spend time with each parent and how you and your ex will divide or share important decision-making responsibilities. This stress becomes compounded when you and your ex live far apart from one another. Creating a long-distance parenting plan can seem nearly impossible at times, but it is entirely possible to craft a plan that works for both you, your ex, and your children.

Plan for Frequent In-Person Visits

For some families, in-person visits can be difficult. However, you should try to place in-person visits at the top of your priorities. Your child deserves to be able to spend time with both you and your ex. Scheduling regular in-person visits, such as monthly or every other month, is crucial to allow your child to maintain a relationship with his or her other parent. You should also consider allowing your child to spend school vacations or breaks with your ex.

Coordinate Your Travel Details

One of the major stresses of long-distance parenting plans is how you handle the travel details. If you and your ex are so far apart that airplane travel is required, this can complicate things. In order to make the distance easier on everyone, you should coordinate with your ex as much as possible to make sure they understand all of the travel details when in-person visits take place, especially if you are transporting your child. You should share times, dates, methods of travel, and costs with your ex to prevent any misunderstandings.
