Ending a marriage is an emotionally challenging time for everyone involved -- especially since nearly every aspect of the lives of the family members will change. Texas couples who have children will most likely spend a great deal of time during the divorce process developing a parenting plan. How that plan is created and the issues it covers could affect the way the children deal with the divorce and its aftermath.
In recent years, many Texas parents have made a conscious effort to be more communicative and cooperative with each other in order to ease the tensions of the situation for their children. The negotiation process can help develop a new way for the parties to interact with each other now that they will no longer be a married couple. As the process progresses, the parties may discover certain triggers that spark conflict between them. The parenting plan can include provisions to outline how any potential confrontations will be resolved.
