Co-Parenting and how mediation helps
The concept of child maintenance comes into existence when the parents of the child separate. It is very important to choose the correct way of maintaining the life of your child which involves all the interested parties including both the parents and a third party which is the expert. The parties who are interested in the life of the child must take steps to ensure that the future of the child is bright and their basic needs and wants are fulfilled through proper communication.
In order to keep communication lines with your child open, it is better for both the parents to interfere in their life whether individually or simultaneously. Co-parenting is a term given when both the parents have an equal share of time given to the child.
It is very important to specify the amount of time each parent has to give to their child after separation. The child must be given enough time so that they don’t feel that their life is ruined after their parents have been separated. The parents must have a proper interest in the life of their child. Parents can decide that whether they want to give 50% of their time so that the child gets 100% split evenly between them.
Or they can decide according to the work around their lifestyle. For example, the father being busier in his work life can meet his child every weekend or twice in a week. There are many cases in which the mother is more involved in the life of the child and takes a more active part in their care. Anything can be decided with the mutual consent of all parties.
