College planning with your children can be difficult and time consuming. If you’re a divorced parent, there’s another layer of complexity associated with the process. As a mother of two and stepmother of three, I can relate. My husband and I just went through this earlier this year – for the third and fourth time - with my son and his middle son.
Most parents can probably agree that this summer will be unlike any other. Families nationwide will navigate how to manage life as we know it in the mid, and maybe post, COVID-19 world. All of this comes as the school year winds down, states begin to reopen, and traveling plans are executed. This is bound to make the summer months even more challenging for divorced parents and co-parents.
The summer season is an opportunity for families to spend time together to have fun and unwind. For co-parents and divorced parents, it takes a lot of organization and coordination to get to the relaxation part. As a divorce mediation and collaborative family law attorney who is also a mother and stepmother, I know the ins and outs of healthy co-parenting.
