I am currently seeking a new attorney and my pending divorce is entering year four. I am phasing major issues with the mother of my children. Every single conversation ends up In a HUGE argument. It’s a true night mare co-parenting with her, I also feel as the stress is affecting my mental health. What can I do ?
I recommend that you schedule a consultation with a family law attorney who can review your case and give your proper guidance.
Your best option is likely to meet with a local attorney to discuss the different routes you have available. Hopefully the formal child custody and visitation order can be drafted in a way to cover all types of issues that might come up that would otherwise cause conflict. Good luck!
You mention you are looking for a new attorney, and that is a great first step. When you consult with one, ask also about parenting coordinators. These are either mental health providers, attorneys, or other professionals who have been specifically trained in helping parents - both parents - learn to co-parent in high conflict cases. They are used more in some areas of Florida than others, but can be very helpful in working through co-parenting issues. Good Luck.
Please note this response does not in any way establish a lawyer-client relationship, nor should anything in it be considered legal advice.
