Long distance relationships are hard. However, once that relationship is over and a child is involved it can become even more difficult to become a long distance parent. Though difficult, it is not impossible. There are ways that you can still keep a child custody schedule and be a long distance parent. If you or loved one is a long distance parent and is trying to adhere to a child custody schedule seek legal advice from an experienced North Carolina child custody attorney to help you determine the best child custody schedule for your situation.
Being a Long Distance Parent
When you are a long distance parent, your options to see your child may seem limited; however, they are not. For long distance parents, though one of you may have primary custody, you still have the ability to be an involved parent. Though each case is different, you have the option of being with your child during the summer as well as during school breaks and vacations. However, it is important to speak with the other parent to help figure out the best options for your situation. In the event an agreeance cannot be reached, a child custody order or agreement may help your situation as well as help you and your child continue a relationship. Because this process may not be easy to achieve, especially in the case you have a “difficult” co-parent, seeking legal advice and representation may be in the best interest of you and your child.
