New York City Child Custody Attorney Ryan Besinque Discusses Co-Parenting for Parents with Joint Custody
New York City child custody attorney Ryan Besinque releases a new article (https://www.besinquelaw.com/successful-joint-custody-putting-the-co-in-co-parenting/) explaining co-parenting practices for parents with joint custody of their children. The attorney mentions that co-parenting can be an ideal and successful arrangement for children especially when parents are ready to work together for the children’s needs.
The New York City child custody attorney emphasizes, "The biggest factor in a successful co-parenting relationship, or any relationship for that matter, is communication. The ability to share information and ideas is a must when it comes to raising children, whether in the same household or separate ones. Quick phone calls, texts, and emails are the best tools to share information. [...] Parents who cannot communicate without making personal comments to the other parent, gaslighting, trying to rehash the past, passing blame, or name-calling will not be successful co-parents.”
Parents who can successfully communicate can cooperate. Meeting expectations when it comes to following a parenting agreement or court order for custody and visitation is not only important for the children but for the co-parent as well. Reliability when it comes to parental responsibilities would help alleviate any sources of disappointment. Attorney Besinque adds that consistently meeting expectations would help make sure the parents have time for work, and personal matters, and to take breaks when both parents are cooperative.
Attorney Besinque explains that collaboration, the act of working with someone to create something, can be applied to co-parenting. Parents collaborate to produce happy, healthy, children. Having a collaborative effort when it comes to parenting will ensure that children learn from the values the parents exemplify. Enriching children’s lives can come from something as simple as allowing children to attend family events on one parent’s assigned parenting time. By prioritizing the children’s best interests, co-parents can maintain stability.
Compromise is also a key factor in successful co-parenting. “Successful co-parents will be able to roll with the punches and take the occasional loss (of parenting time, decision-making, holidays) with the understanding that a compromise is usually only a temporary concession that promotes the long-term goal of stability for the children, as well as the co-parenting relationship. To that end, compromise should be reciprocated so that neither party feels like a doormat and not taken advantage of," says the Manhattan child custody attorney.
Lastly, attorney Ryan Besinque emphasizes that each family is unique. When in a situation involving custody issues, seeking the help of an experienced attorney is important. A skilled child custody lawyer should be able to discuss the unique aspects of a family’s case.
