Considerations in child custody matters

Couples in South Carolina who are going through a divorce have a lot to consider in terms of dividing up property and future support payments. Those who have children have even more serious decisions to make, and custody issues can cause a lot of strife among families. There are a number of factors parents need to think about in order to make the best choice for the child's life.

According to Psychology Today, one of the biggest mistakes couples make is pointing out flaws of the other parent. Not only does this make the accusing parent look bad in the eyes of the court or mediator, but it also can cause issues with the daughter or son. It is much better if parents can put aside their differences and focus on what is best for the child. In most cases, it is important he or she is able to spend time with each parent, even if custody is not 50/50. Parents should also be careful when setting up rules, especially those that limit communication with the other parent, as they will be accountable for them as well. 

The American Psychological Association states that 90% of parents are able to work together and come up with a custody arrangement that they can agree upon. Oftentimes they take advantage of help in the form of mediation, counseling, psychotherapy and consultation when making their decision. When parents cannot agree, the courts are responsible for deciding who will be the primary caretaker and what access the other parent has.
