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 so that the future of the child is bright and his basic needs and wants are fulfilled through proper communication. In order to have a good communication with your child it is better for both the parents to interfere in his life weather 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 its child after separation. The child must be given enough time so that he doesn’t have a feeling that his life is ruined after his 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 time by each of them so that the child gets 100% eventually. Or they can decide according to the work like they have. For example, the father being more busy 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 more active part in his care. Anything can be decided with the mutual consent of all the parties.
