One of the most difficult aspects of a divorce is trying to determine what will happen to the children. Even though you and your spouse are going through the difficult process of ending your marriage, you may decide that it is best for you to co-parent. This is a type of custody option that will provide your children with regular access to both of you.
Co-parenting requires cooperation and a mutual commitment to protecting the best interests of the children above all else. You may believe that this is the right choice for your unique family situation, but how can you make this work when you and your spouse don't get along? Communication is the key to success in this type of custody plan, but some South Dakota parents can actually make it work without talking with each other.
