It is important that each party in a divorce or separation maintain a stable and healthy environment for the children. Keep in mind that divorce is difficult for children also. However, communications will eventually occur between the divorcing or separated parents regarding the kids and their needs. One of the best methods of communication between divorcing or separated parents is email and text messaging. Email and text messages are time stamped, written documentation that a communication occurred and that the parties are working together as parents for the child’s best interests. It is also important that these messages are NOT used to harass the other parent. Therefore, it is best to limit conversations to matters related to the kids.
