After going through a divorce, you probably won't think too highly of your ex-spouse. The children you share with your ex, however, are your world. These conflicting feelings sometimes motivate ex-spouses against one another for the love of their children.
Whether you and your spouse reach an agreement on child custody or a court must decide the custody arrangement, your child's best interests should be the main consideration in the type of arrangement that is chosen. As parents, you and your spouse are probably the two people who understand your child's needs better than anyone else. However, it can be difficult to work together with a spouse during divorce, and some divorcing couples are unable to agree on an arrangement that best meets their child's needs.
