Ask these questions before you decide to get a divorce

The decision to move forward with divorce is probably one of the most difficult you'll ever have to make. However, if you're currently unhappy in your marriage and you're not getting your needs met, this decision could be one of the best you make in your life, so it's important that you don't delay. To evaluate your situation so you can tell if "it's time," you might want to ask yourself the following questions:

How does the every extended weekend child custody schedule work?

There are innumerable ways by which parents can divide their child custody time. Some parents opt for a schedule known as the "every extended weekend plan." This plan may not be appropriate for all parents because it allows one parent to always have the children on the weekends with a little bit of extra time added to the beginning and end of each weekend.

How children can benefit from joint-custody arrangements

As someone currently navigating your way through a separation or divorce, you may be experiencing considerable upheaval in your life as you adjust to new living arrangements, parenting routines and so on. For many parents going through a divorce, one of the hardest parts involves learning to adapt to new custody arrangements, and this may prove particularly true for parents who find their current custody arrangement lacking.
