Making Informed Decisions
There are choices to proceed through litigation. There are choices to end litigation. There are choices to avoid litigation. Courts are are designed to address and resolve litigation disputes according to the laws. Parents that resolved litigation through alternative means to litigation are less likely to return to the court for post decree issues.
"I really liked that this course got me thinking about how my personal feelings really do affect my children and their perspective of their father. I now know that I need to present myself in a pleasant manner and let the children know that we are all still a family and that both myself and their father are still going to parent together and make decisions together regarding their well-being."
"My ex and I have been talking over things these past two days and actually planning things out with the children. Mapping out our calendar to accommodate his Military Guard Duty weekends so the kids still spend as much time as possible with each of us."
"The first thing I need to work on is forgiving myself. I recognize my role in the breakdown of our marriage as well as his, as we began growing apart several years ago. But I never thought that forgiving myself was necessary, but I see now that it is a vital step in moving on and forgiving him as well."
"To make things easier, I need to stay focused on the kids and our future, and stop getting so caught up in the process we're going through. I appreciate that my co-parent is a very loving and caring mother, who generally always puts the needs of our kids first."
"This course was an extremely informative class. I'm so happy that it is court ordered as I'm sure it is helpful to many parents going through a breakup."
"I liked that the course was very relevant and it kept the information flowing without getting monotonous or boring or overwhelming. Lots of common sense! The handbook is chock full of great information."
