Are there benefits to co-parenting?

Once you and your spouse have settled on getting a divorce as the only way to remedy ongoing conflict in your relationship, your attention may be turned to your children and how you can continue to give them a stable childhood despite the coming changes in your family dynamic. If you and your spouse are able to maintain some level of mutual respect in regards to parenting, your children may have a much easier time transitioning to your divorce in Florida. 

While it may be incredibly difficult to overlook the reasons why you and your spouse are separating in the first place, putting your judgments aside and seeing your former spouse as the loyal and loving parent that they still are, is imperative to maintaining respect and giving your children a chance to continue to develop healthy relationships with both of their parents. 

According to, some of the benefits that your children may experience as a result of you and your spouse choosing to co-parent include the ability to solve problems and benefit from the consistency of having two parents despite the relationship's separation. You can also provide your children with a profound sense of security that may enable them to experience better mental and emotional health than children whose parents are unable to work together. When you and your ex are able to continue to parent together and share the duties of raising your children, you can set a positive example for them.
