IL divorce lawyerIf you are a single parent, you may find time management challenging. Fortunately, we have compiled this handy list of time management skills to help you save time and stress as you follow your parenting plan and try to juggle your other duties.

1. Do Not Be a Perfectionist

You should accept the fact that there is no such thing as a perfect parent. By trying to be perfect, you can add more stress to your life. Rather than being a perfectionist, strive to be good enough. If you forget to do something or are unable to complete a task, tell yourself it is okay and move on.

Illinois family lawyerDivorcing parents have the right to collaborate and come up with a parenting plan that works for both of them. If they cannot come to an agreement, a judge will look at what is in the best interests of the children and design a parenting plan.

In many divorces, the goal is to give both parents close to equal parenting time. This way, each parent can play an active role in their children’s lives and children can be raised by both of their parents. Parenting time is granted to both parents unless there is some type of child endangerment issue.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for one parent to try to withhold parenting time from their ex-spouse. Let us dive deeper into what it means to withhold parenting time and what your options are when your ex takes away from your time with your children.

Since there is often confusion about what a parenting plan actually is and what to expect when one is drafted and implemented, we have decided to outline the basics in this informative article.

What Is a Parenting Plan?

A legal document that explains how a divorce impacts minor children is known as a parenting plan. It includes information on weekly parenting time, major life decisions, and other components about your children’s lives. In Illinois, a parenting plan must contain the following elements:

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-24.jpgThe way you spend your parenting time when your child is a toddler will be far different than when your child is a teenager. Since parenting time changes with different ages, it is important to understand how to make the best use of your time throughout every stage of your child’s life. Let’s take a closer look at how you can expect to spend your parenting time when your child is a toddler, in elementary school, and teenager.

Toddler

When your child is young, your parenting time may be spent teaching them how to speak and read. You may consider reading, playing educational games, or taking them to activities that allow them to socialize and meet other children. By doing so, you will prepare them for kindergarten.

Illinois child relocation attorneysLearning that the other parent of your child wants to relocate is a lot like a punch in the gut. Your child, whom you may only see part of the time, could move, perhaps hundreds of miles away. If the relocation is a success, you know that you will see your child less often. The after-school stops for ice cream will end. There will be no more pickups from dance class when your ex-partner is stuck at work. Thankfully, you can attempt to stop a child relocation before it happens. The following information explains further.

An Overview of the Relocation Process

Unless the other parent will be moving a short distance (limits are based on state and county laws), they must notify you, in writing, of their desire to move. Included in their notice should be information on when they intend to relocate, the address to which they are planning to relocate, and the duration of the relocation (some may be temporary). That notice is also filed with the court clerk. If you consent to the move, you can file a response letter with the court, giving the other parent permission to relocate. If you do not consent, you can contest the move, which places the decision in the hands of the court.
