Visitation after divorce: Don't make these mistakes

There is no denying the many benefits of visitation after divorce. This allows the noncustodial parent to spend time with their children, which is healthy and beneficial for all parties involved.

Unfortunately, there are a variety of mistakes lurking around every corner. If you make one or more of these, it's likely that you'll run into trouble at some point.

  • Refusing to communicate: You don't have to communicate with your ex-spouse as if you are still married, but it's important to do so when necessary. If you're unable to efficiently communicate in person or over the phone, do so via text or email.
  • Don't get in the way of your children's relationship with your ex: Don't make your children feel guilty about spending time with them. Don't ask your children who they like better. Don't tell your children they're punishing you by spending time with their other parent.
  • Letting anger guide your actions: No matter how upset you are about how your marriage ended, you can't let your anger get in the way of how you raise your children. Doing so makes life more difficult on both you and your ex, while also putting your children in an awkward position.

If you make one or more of these visitation mistakes after divorce, it's likely to result in additional stress and tension.

In the event that your ex is in violation of your parenting and visitation agreement, don't take matters into your own hands. Instead, learn more about your legal rights and then seek a modification to help get things back on track.
